Step 3: Create and Edit your Bucs Abroad Program
Programs Accepted by the IAC
Checklist for Your Bucs Abroad Program Page
Your Bucs Abroad Program Page is a site to advertise your trip. This webpage also serves as the application page for students to apply (students must apply and be accepted to study abroad). It is also how the Department of International Programs & Services can "track" which faculty and students are abroad at any given date and in any given location. This helps us know who to check on in the event of an emergency (natural disaster, terrorism, etc.).
1. Request Program Template: Email firstname.lastname@example.org to have a program template set up. This program page is how students will view your study abroad program and apply to it!
2. Learn How to Edit Your Program: Once your program is set up, you may edit your program. Use the following guides for assistance:
- New Applicants: Schedule Bucs Abroad Training
- Call 423-439-7737 or email email@example.com
- Request an appointment with Hopelyn for Faculty Bucs Abroad Training, 1 hour time slot

4. (Required) Application Details: These details are required in order to have a smooth application process. Students must know the minimum requirements for the program prior to applying, so that they understand that acceptance is not guaranteed.

5. (Recommended) Brochure Tab: this tab advertises your program to students navigating the Bucs Abroad site. We recommend editing this section to catch student eyes!
