Please attach a scan of the inside, front pages of your passport, including photo, issue information, and expiration date. Your passport must be valid for at least six months after your planned return. If you do not yet have a passport or need to renew it, you must include proof that you have submitted a passport application (available from the International Office). Passport offices frequently have long turn-around times and if you wait to secure one, you may not receive it in time to participate in a North Park program.
Answering "yes" to any of the following questions will not necessarily disqualify you from studying abroad.
Please list three people that know you well that you'd like to have recommend you for studying abroad. When you submit this application, your references will be automatically emailed a link to where they can fill out a reference for you. Two of your references must be faculty/staff of North Park University, and the other should be someone outside of the University. None may be family members.
*Note to ISEP applicants: Please list Sumie Song, email@example.com as both of the North Park faculty/staff references. The third one should still be someone from outside of the university.
Please introduce yourself and explain your goals for studying abroad and for integrating into the host culture. What specific situations from your past (i.e., coursework, job experience, travel, intercultural experience, etc.) have helped you prepare to accomplish these goals? While it is understood that students will want to travel while studying abroad, foreign travel is generally not the type of goal on which you should focus your essay.
*Note to ISEP applicants: You may use the same essay for both the ISEP application and this one.
