To study abroad, students must complete:
- TCNJ Study Abroad Application AND
- Application of their program choice (e.g. ISA, CIEE). Please read below and follow the instructions.
TCNJ is transitioning to new study abroad office management software and there will be a period of time when our program directory and application system will be down for maintenance.
If you’d like to submit an application, you’ll need to use the paper-based “TCNJ Study Abroad Application” and the other materials found below. Once our new online system is up and running, we will no longer use the paper application.
We will provide updates here, through our Facebook page, and on our Twitter feed, to keep you informed about our progress. Thank you for your patience.

You must submit these applications as part of the TCNJ application.
- Log onto PAWS, go to “Academic Records” and click on “Request Official Transcript” and have it sent (there is no fee) directly to Green Hall 111.
- For transfer students only: In addition to your TCNJ transcript, please also request transcripts from all previous institutions you have attended. Have these transcripts sent to Green Hall 111.
This form needs to be filled out by your personal physician or by a practitioner at TCNJ Health Services. TCNJ Health Services will provide a physical for a small fee.
This form must be completed by the application deadline. You may need to schedule this appointment at least 2 months in advance. To make an appointment at TCNJ Health Services, first be sure to have chosen your study abroad destination.
