The application deadlines are:
April 15 for the fall semester
September 30 for the winter semester
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Early application is highly recommended, as program space is limited. Important note: UO application deadlines may be earlier than other posted deadlines. All UO students must apply by the deadlines listed above.
The program is open to students from all fields of study. To be eligible, students must meet the following minimum requirements before departure:
- have an overall GPA of 2.50 or above
- have at least 45 credits (freshman year complete)
Note: One or more terms of college Italian are strongly recommended prior to participation in this program, particularly since few Macerata residents speak English. Course work in Italian is not required prior to participation, however.
Students must also make satisfactory academic progress throughout the application process and their study abroad program, and otherwise comply with policies and procedures of the host university, the UO and Study Abroad Programs.
If you do not meet the minimum requirements, please contact Diane Pritchard before applying.
(Note: This program is not open to graduate students.)
Early application is advised. Selection for the program is based on a review of the student's written application, transcripts, recommendations and completion of the interview process.
IMPORTANT: Applications for AHA programs involve two parts. Both parts of the application are due by the UO application deadline. Please note that the UO deadline supersedes the AHA deadline.
1. Completion of the UO online application.
2. Completion of the AHA online application, which includes the following:
- Two Recommendations
- Official Transcripts
Application fees are due at the time the applications are submitted and are non-refundable under any circumstances.

Please note that students cannot begin the interview process until both applications are complete.
Selection and Participation

Program participants must also demonstrate the ability to be successful overseas through evidence of maturity, motivation, and flexibility, and such other characteristics as Study Abroad Programs may deem relevant or appropriate.
