Hamline will review all applications several weeks after the deadlines. Approval from Hamline is necessary for credits to return to Hamline.

Other applications

Unless you are doing a Hamline Faculty-led program, you will need to complete two applications.

Once accepted by Hamline, you will get information on next steps, including reminders on program-specific applications, scholarships, and orientations. Remember that some programs will need you to complete their application first, or at the same time as your Hamline application.


Once approved by Hamline, you will start the next part of the process: Preparing to go on your program. This may include steps like a second application outside of Hamline’s application.

Hamline’s approval does not mean you are going on the program, so don’t buy your plane ticket just yet!

The GEC will send you information on if you need to apply to the program directly. Please note this means there might be another round of deadlines and steps that you must follow.

The following items are a general list of things you may want to look into before you depart. There is no requirement to complete this checklist, but we highly recommend looking into them.
