Pay Application Fee here (must be paid before application will be processed)
Any full-time or part-time student is eligible to participate in the program. Students from institutions that are not part of the University System of Georgia are admitted on a space-available basis and must enroll as transient students at a participating institution.
An application form is available on the European Council Website; copies of the form are also available from campus representatives listed on this site. Completed applications should be submitted to the campus representatives, along with a required application fee of $200 (to be paid online). Campus representatives forward completed applications to the program office at Valdosta State University. Applications will not be processed by the EC office until both the application form (approved by the campus representative) and the $200 application fee are received.
Because of space limitations, acceptance is on a first come, first served basis, according to the date of receipt of the application and application fee at the program office. Students are encouraged to apply well in advance of the application deadline to assure them of a place in the program. The application deadline for 2013 programs is March 1, 2012.
Students must be in good standing in order to be admitted to the program. Completion of an application form does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Note also that individual campuses may require letters of reference or other information beyond that required by the European Council.
