Fall Florence Application Update

Applications for fall 2018 semester study abroad in Florence are at an all-time high! As noted on the website, conditional admission to programs is on a space-available basis, and students are encouraged to apply early to help secure a spot on the program.  

 Applicants should log into Horizons to review their “Application Checklist” to determine which (if any) pieces of the application are incomplete. This includes the pre-acceptance requirements, advisor and professor approvals, transcript, passport-style photos, and application fee. Completion of these steps allows a student to be considered for conditional acceptance.

 Please note that space availability in relation to advisor and professor recommendations is determined by the date an applicant requests their recommendations, not the date recommendations are received by Marist Abroad.

 Conditional acceptance decisions will be announced no more than two weeks after the application deadline (March 1, 2018). If the number of completed applications exceeds the capacity of the Florence program on March 1, we will contact affected students to discuss their second-choice program, the fall Florence waitlist, or deferment of their application for spring 2019.

Thank you for your interest in our abroad program. We look forward to working with you toward your goals in international education!
