Wondering about how to choose a program? What is the difference between a co-sponsored program and a UST/UMAIE sponsored program? How do you apply?
Start exploring the basics: How to Apply to a J-Term Program
1) Attend a J-Term First Step Session for general information about all types of J-Term programs (optional session, does not fulfill advising session requirement for co-sponsored programs).
J-Term First Step Sessions - 12:15-1pm - MHC 212
2016 Session dates: TBA
2) Search all J-Term courses here.
3) Once you've identified a few programs of interest, go to the UST/UMAIE Programs page or the Co-Sponsored Programs page for course specific information.
4) Apply for a scholarship. Visit the Costs & Financial Aid page to fill out a scholarship application. You may apply for a scholarship even if you have not submitted a program application.
