If you need a passport or need to renew your passport, we STRONGLY SUGGEST that you begin that process ASAP. We recommend that you have a valid passport in hand by the time you apply for your study away program (please see application deadlines above). Passports must be valid for 6 months after your RETURN date. For example, if you are planning to study away in the fall 2022 semester, your passport must be valid through June 2023.

US CITIZENS: Passport applications and renewals are being processed at an extremely delayed rate due to the COVID-19 pandemic, limiting passport agencies’ operations. Passport processing time is roughly 2- 3 months. Visit the US Department of State website to begin the process.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, passport renewals may be delayed in your home country. If you need to renew your passport, we strongly encourage you to review your home countries’ renewal process/timelines and plan accordingly.
