Frequently Asked Questions
Through an affiliation agreement with CAPA, D'Youville offers seven programs each fall, spring and summer semesters. D'Youville also offers shorter faculty-led summer programs. These programs vary from year to year.
Exchange programs involve the exchange of students between D'Youville College and a university overseas. Each student will pay their usual DYC tuition and will pay the exchange university the costs for room and board. Affiliation means you will travel overseas with a third party provider that D'Youville has a signed contract with.
You will pay the cost of that program, which will include your tuition and housing, through your student account at D'Youville. You will remain a registered DYC student and receive credit through D'Youville. Faculty led programs are much shorter in duration and currently run only in the summer. You will be registered for the particular course that is tied to the faculty led study abroad program. You will pay DYC summer tuition and additional fees will be charged to your student account for the study abroad experience.
Semester CAPA Affiliate Programs
If you have maintained a grade point average of at least 2.5, you are probably eligible to study abroad, but please check with the Center for Global Engagement. You should also discuss your plans to study abroad with the academic study abroad coordinator, Dr. John Abbarno and with your faculty advisor. They can help you decide which semester is most academically appropriate, and which program offerings are best suited to your major.
Each faculty led program will have its own application and selection criteria. Please check with the faculty leader that is listed as the contact for the program you are interested in attending.
Many people begin their search the semester before they plan to go away. We recommend starting the planning process as early as your freshman year or at least 9-12 months before you plan to study abroad. This will help you academically prepare for your semester away and give you ample opportunity to research and apply for outside scholarships.
Applications can either be picked up in person from the International Student Services, DAC Suite 219 or download the Study Abroad Application (PDF).
Every student studying abroad will require a passport, but not every student will require a visa. Visa requirements will depend upon the country of study and you will be responsible for obtaining the appropriate visa. Study Abroad and CAPA will provide valuable advice and assistance. Please be aware that some students may have to travel to the nearest embassy or consulate and appear for the visa interview in person. A passport is mandatory before application for a visa.
