B. The Application Process
Once you have decided you want to study abroad, it is a good idea to meet with a Sklenar Center
staff member to discuss your options. Following this meeting, you will need to complete your travel
profile.
Note:
All approved study abroad students will remain enrolled at BSC throughout their study abroad
