Getting Started

Wondering about how to choose a program? What is the difference between St. Thomas/UMAIE sponsored programs and other approved J-Term programs? How do you apply? 

Start exploring the basics: How to Apply to a J-Term Program 

1)     Attend a First Step Session for general information about all types of programs (optional session, does not fulfill advising session requirement for January Term co-sponsored programs).
2)     Search all J-Term courses here.
3)     Once you've identified a few programs of interest, go to the St. Thomas/UMAIE Programs page or the Other Approved J-Term 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.
