Nomination & Application Process

Congratulations on your decision to attend Goucher College!  We recognize that during this time of uncertainty with regard to health, visa issuance, and  travel restrictions, we will need to be flexible with arrangements for the 2021-22 academic year.  We expected to open our campus for a full residential experience and will communicate any campus decisions that may impact your exchange experience.  We look forward to your arrival and to providing you with assistance and support throughout your stay.  Please print the following application and complete the forms:

Generally, applications for the fall semester are due by April 15 and applications for the spring semester are due by October 15.  We are willing to maintain flexibility through the pandemic and act in the best interest of the students and our exchange partnership.

The exchange agreements do vary somewhat, so please contact your home university or the Associate Director in the Office of Global Education at Goucher for the amount of financial support to be documented for immigration purposes.  The estimated cost of living expenses to be documented on the application for the 2021-22 academic year is generally $12,000 USD for one semester and $22,000 USD for the full year.
