After you Apply: Nomination

MIX Applicants will receive a Nomination & Next Steps email within one month after the Priority Deadline.

Being nominated to a MIX Partner University means that you have been deemed qualified for one of the available exchange spaces at that university. MIX has officially nominated you to the Partner University, and provided some basic information about you (name, major, etc.).

Factors considered for MIX Nomination: GPA, academic area, class level, space available, and the balance between inbound and outbound exchange students at each partner university.

Please keep an open mind about your nomination. All MIX Partner Universities are excellent, so you will be in good hands no matter where you go.

MIX Summer Programs: Only students going on "Regular Exchange" programs need to be officially nominated to the Partner University before going on to Next Steps. Students going on "Independent" programs can go on to Next Steps without a nomination.

After Nomination: Next Steps

Once you have been nominated to a MIX Partner University, you must complete that university's application process for exchange students.

Important: Your Nomination & Next Steps email will contain detailed instructions on how and when to complete the application process for your partner university. Please follow instructions carefully, and submit your application materials to the partner university on time! Let the MIX staff know if you need help.

Each university has a different application process - some have online applications, while others require you to send forms and documents in the mail. Some universities require letters of recommendation, while others do not. Many universities require official transcripts, ID photographs, health forms, etc.

Once you have been nominated to a MIX Partner University, please go to MIX Pre-Departure Information.
