Application Process

First, an exchange student must be formally nominated by their home university to participate in the Babson College International Student Exchange program. Upon receipt of the nomination, the student will be asked to confirm the nomination. Finally, once confirmed, an online application will be opened for the student and all documents and materials will be submitted securely through our application portal. In preparation for completing the application, the student should be prepared to submit the following:

  1. Passport copy

  2. Proof of proficiency in English -- for all students (click here for Admission Requirements)
    Please note:  The US Department of State mandates that we must obtain documentation of English language proficiency for all students studying in the US with a J-1 visa.  This applies to students for whom English is the first language and/or students who are attending English-speaking institutions or degree programs.  If you are attending an English-speaking institution and/or degree program, your home school coordinator may certify your English proficiency in a signed letter.  If you are from a non-English speaking country you must submit an official test score report consistent with our admission requirements.  Please contact glavinoffice@babson.edu with any questions or concerns.

  3. Official transcript(s) for all previous university course work (students will be asked to upload a scanned copy of an original transcript)

  4. Curriculum vitae -- for Graduate (MBA) students only

  5. Proof of funding documentation to support the request for a Form DS-2019

  6. Health History & Immunization Forms*

*After your acceptance to Babson's exchange program, you will receive information from the Office of Health Services regarding the required documentation you need to provide, including proof of specific immunizations and a full health history. Plan ahead as you may need to meet with a physician or receive updated vaccinations.

Please note that all application documents must be submitted in English. All documents should be scanned and submitted through the student's unique application portal.  Application documents will not be accepted by post or email.
