Here's how!

Meeting with Dean Mancini:

Spring 2014 applicants:

Dean Mancini would be happy to meet with you regarding study abroad.  She will meet with spring study abroad students beginning on Friday, September 13.  Please be sure to look at the application deadlines for the program you are considering, as some are much earlier than Haverford's October 5 deadline.


Fall 2014 and 2014-2015 Academic Year applicants:

Dean Mancini will meet with fall and academic year applicants after Fall Break (the first appointment available for Fall applicants is Monday, October 21).


Make an appointment with Dean Mancini on her Google Calendar. If you haven't used Google Calendar Appointments before, just scroll ahead and you should be able to click on an appointment slot for any time (beginning on the dates explained above) and sign up for any available time that is good for you.  If you do not see an appointment time, that means she is already booked. When you make an appointment, no one else will see your name on the calendar and you will not be able to see who has made an appointment. This is to protect everyone’s privacy.


2-step Application Process:

For information about the 2-step Application Process, please visit the Applications page on the Study Abroad website.

Step 1: Declare your Intent to Study Abroad, so you will be in our database.

Step 2: Apply to only one program (unless Dean Mancini has given you permission to apply to more than one program during your meeting with her). Lori Roth (lroth1@haverford.edu) will help you with the application process. Please e-mail her with any and all questions about the applications.
