Approval to study abroad is formally granted by the Study Abroad Committee. See the eligibility requirements for more information. The Major Adviser Evaluation Form is an important factor in the evaluation process.
The Major Adviser Evaluation Form is located in the Study Abroad section of the Major Work Plan in BiONiC*. Before you complete this form, you and the student should discuss their study abroad plans in detail, including both program choice and semester of study. Once a form has been submitted a message stating “Status: Evaluation form has been submitted” will appear that will be visible to both you and the student (see screen shot below). The form itself and the information provided on the form will not be accessible to students.
(Please note that if a student is a double major, only one Major Adviser Evaluation Form is required.)
There are two deadlines for students' materials: early December (for programs that are especially selective or that involve full year study away) and early February. December applicants must have their Major Adviser Evaluation submitted at the same time. February applicants may receive initial approval while their Major Adviser Evaluation is pending, but it must by submitted by April.
*Bryn Mawr sophomores who are majoring at Haverford should ask Haverford faculty to complete a Study Abroad Major Adviser Evaluation form.
