How to Enroll

UC Davis Student Exchanges have limited space available and enrollment is accepted on a first-completed, first-reserved basis so students are encouraged to submit their enrollment early. The enrollment period for Winter and/or Spring 2020 exchanges is from May 1, 2019 – September 30, 2019.

  1. Create a Study Abroad account
  2. Fill out your profile with your programs of interest
  3. Meet with the departmental advisor and/or program faculty to discuss your interest in the program and how it fits into your academic plan.
  4. Start gathering enrollment materials such as your Study Plan Proposal and Passport Copy
  5. Starting on May 1, 2019, start your enrollment by clicking "Apply Here" in the top menu and select a term next to your program. Complete all steps of the Enrollment section and submit your enrollment. The last day to enroll for open programs for Winter and/or Spring 2020 is September 30, 2019 at 4:30pm.

Students who complete the enrollment steps listed above, meet the program eligibility requirements, and are saved a spot in the program will be “conditionally enrolled.”

Students will be notified via email if they are “conditionally enrolled.” To become “fully enrolled,” students must complete the ‘next steps’ outlined in subsequent emails. These ‘next steps’ vary by exchange program, but will include department approval, nomination to host university, and host university acceptance.

Please feel free to contact exchanges@ucdavis.edu with any questions or concerns about the enrollment process.
