What happens once you have applied?

Step 1: Receive a Provisional Admission OR a Place on the Waitlist

Provisional Admission:

Once your application is received by the Center for Global Engagement, you will receive an email stating that you are "provisionally admitted" to study at the Italian Campus. "Provisional admission" means that you are subject to the following conditions:

  • Depositing $1250 by the deadline (March 1 for Fall; Sept. 1 for Spring).
  • Have at least a minimum GPA of 3.0.*
  • Receive Disciplinary Clearance from the Office of Student Life.*
    *Only students who have deposited will be subject to these reviews.

Applications are accepted until the campus is full. However, not all provisionally accepted students deposit, and not all deposited students are cleared to attend. Waitlisted students often get the opportunity to attend, so it is worthwhile to apply even when you end up on the waitlist. Once the deposit deadline has passed, the Center for Global Engagement will have a better sense of whether waitlisted students will have a chance to go.

Step 2: Receive a Detailed Package about the Program (including deposit instructions)


Fall Semester: Mid-February
Spring Semester: Mid-July 

Available for pick-up in the Center for Global Engagement or mailed to your home.

Step 3: Deposit by the Deadline

Your deposit will assure you a place in the program subject to meeting the GPA and Student Life review. Your deposit is fully refundable if you do not pass these reviews.  You will only lose your place if your GPA falls below 3.0 and/or the Office of Student Life indicates a history of behavioral issues that would put you at risk abroad.

All deposits can be made in person by check payable to 'Duquesne University' (submit to Kim in 601 Union) or online Deposit Here
