OSA Summer Programs Video Guide

Summer is a wonderful time to explore the world. The Newcomb Tulane College Office of Study Abroad Summer programs are designed and taught by Tulane faculty members. The credits you receive for the courses you take while abroad are just like any other courses you take at NTC.  We recommend you speak with your academic and major advisors to be sure that study abroad fits within your academic plan and overall degree progression. 

The deadline to submit your application for the Summer Programs is Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Select the green “Apply Now!” button on your selected program’s online brochure to complete the application.

CIEE Program

In order to study abroad with CIEE this summer, you will need to complete two applications, one through Tulane, and one through CIEE. The important thing to remember is that all CIEE programs are Tulane approved, even if they do not appear on our website. If you would like to apply to a CIEE program you cannot locate on Tulane’s list of available summer programs, you would simply select the “CIEE Summer Program” for the summer and fill in your program’s information after hitting the green “Apply Now!” button on your selected program’s online brochure via 

You will also need to complete an application through CIEE for your intended program. This you will find on CIEE’s website,, after navigating to your chosen program’s informational page. 

If you are seeking major, minor, or degree credit for the courses you will take over the summer, you will need to meet with your relevant departmental advisor both before your semester abroad to discuss pre-approval and when you return, to finalize course equivalency. 

Non-Tulane Program

If you are applying to a Non-Tulane program for the summer, you will need to complete both our Non-Tulane program form and your chosen program’s application. The Non-Tulane form can be found on our website,, and is listed under “Non-Tulane Program.” This form is used primarily for our office’s purposes to keep track of where students are and to ensure we are sending them to reputable programs. 

Unlike Non-Tulane programs for fall, spring, or the academic year, if you participate in a program outside of Tulane for the summer, you will not be considered as taking a leave of absence. Rather, your Non-Tulane form will simply be forwarded to academic advising for approval once it is reviewed and approved by Tulane’s Office of Study Abroad. You will need to work with academic advising to discuss transfer of credits from your summer abroad as well.

Finally, you will need to apply directly through your chosen program--keep in mind their deadlines and requirements may differ from Tulane’s.
