All BOSP participants are subject to and will be held accountable for the policies in this section. Please review them carefully.
Extend Your Stay on a Quarter length program
BOSP offers exciting opportunities to extend your stay in a program overseas to a second or third quarter depending on the program and quarter! Any extension requested prior to the first application round for the quarter the extension takes place in will be given priority. Any extension request after this cannot be guaranteed.
To request an extension, log in to the BOSP Application System, go to the steps associated with your application, and click the Extension Request button to submit your Extension Request.
Withdraw from a Program
In the unfortunate event that you must withdraw from the program, log in to the BOSP Application System, go to the steps associated with your application, and click the Withdraw button to submit your withdrawal notification. Please refer to your BOSP Participation Agreement for withdrawal deadlines. It is important that you read this information carefully and consider that withdrawing from the program may have financial consequences.
Withdraw from a Program Waitlist
You may remain on a waitlist as long as you wish without any financial commitment. If your plans change and you do not wish to remain on the waitlist, log in to the BOSP Application System, go to the steps associated with your application, and click the Withdraw button to submit your withdrawal notification.
Every Stanford undergraduate should give serious consideration to studying overseas.
Regardless of the academic path you choose, you will be enriched by time spent in another country. Achieving cultural literacy and gaining substantive understanding of other perspectives in the world will deepen your awareness of yourself, your educational goals, and your own society. Nearly one-half of each graduating class studies abroad through one of Stanford's overseas programs.
