Application Tips

The sooner you apply, the better your chances for acceptance in the program of your choice. A limited number of ASSE scholarships are available based upon financial need and academic merit.

An academic year, semester or a short–term program abroad will be the most challenging experience of your life. And if you’re ready to face the unknown, the excitement, adventure and rewards of an exchange experience abroad can be yours, too!

For your convenience ASSE accepts credit cards. You may pay your program fees (deposit and final payment) by Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
