Application Procedure

Participants in the Hessen-Wisconsin State Exchange Program need to complete a two-step application process:


  1.  The first step is the Program Application for the State of Hessen:
    • Please fill out all required documents for the Program Application
    • Please hand in the Program Application with all documents to the study abroad office at your home campus

After the selection process, you will be informed if you will be nominated for the Hessen-Wisconsin State Program. Students who are selected for nomination will have a place, however the host institution must make the decision on acceptance.


If for any reason, a student's first choice institution cannot accept them, they will be placed at an alternate institution.


2. The second step is the Host Institution Application for the institution you are nominated for. Please note: for students participating in the Short-Term Programs ISU and IWU, there is usually no second application needed.

    • The documents/link for the Host Institution Application will be sent to you by a program administrator after you have received your program nomination
    • Please hand in the Host Institution Application to the host institution
    • After receiving the Host Institution Acceptance, you have completed the application process and will be informed about what other materials are needed to prepare your stay in Hessen
