Resources for CSU IP CoordinatorsThe IP Coordinator is a campus staff member assigned to coordinate study abroad through CSU International Programs (CSU IP) on their campus. The IP Coordinator serves as the main point of contact for providing information to students and guiding them through the application process. We have provided various resources below to assist IP Coordinators in this role.
IP Coordinator CalendarThe IP Coordinator Calendar is a timeline of important dates and deadlines pertaining to the current as well as upcoming application cycle and other key events of interest to IP Coordinators. It includes dates for the selection process, notification of acceptances, availability of post decision materials for newly accepted students, pre-departure orientations, IP Coordinator Workshop, IP scholarship nominations and other information. The calendar will be updated throughout the year as dates become available.
Application Transmittal FormThe Application Transmittal Form should be completed and enclosed with any hard copy application documents forwarded to OIP by the IP Coordinator. To ensure a timely review of student applications by the selection committee, all transcripts must be submitted to CSU IP no later than two weeks after the application deadline.
Applicant EvaluationIP Coordinators are required to complete an Applicant Evaluation for each student applying from their campus. The evaluation is a form-fillable PDF which can be completed in Adobe. Please save completed evaluations in PDF format and then upload them to each applicant's respective application in TDS. To ensure a timely review of student applications by the selection committee, evaluations must be submitted by the date listed in the IP Coordinator Calendar above. Step-by-step instructions for how to upload the Applicant Evaluations can be found below under "Additional Resources."
Renewal or Transfer Applicants
CSU IP undergraduate participants who wish to continue their studies for a second consecutive year in the same country may reapply using the CSU IP Renewal Application form. Applications beyond the second year will not be accepted. Renewals are only accepted for the following countries: China, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. The student should request the application from their onsite Resident Director or Program Coordinator and submit it by March 1st.
CSU IP undergraduate participants who wish to apply for a second consecutive year in a different country must complete the online application for that program. These students are not required to complete the Applicant Evaluation or request recommendations. They can upload an unofficial copy of their most recent home campus transcripts. After they begin an application, the student should email firstname.lastname@example.org to alert CSU IP to their status as a Transfer Applicant.
Academic-Related Information and Resources
Concurrent Enrollment at CSU Campuses. IP Coordinators are responsible for ensuring that their students going abroad are concurrently enrolled at their home campus for the terms that their students will be studying abroad. Below are links to memos that provide a timeline and action items to assist them with this process:
- Coordinating Campus Registration for Academic Year Participants
- Coordinating Campus Processes for Calendar Year Participants
Enrollment in Campus Courses While Abroad. Through their Study Abroad/International Education Offices at their home CSU campus, CSU IP students may be able to take campus courses while they are enrolled as full time students abroad. For more information, click here.
End-of-Year Academic Reports for CSU IP Participants Effective June 1, 2019, IP Coordinators will be copied on transmittal emails sent to their campus registrar/record office that contain academic reports for CSU IP participants who have completed their studies abroad. Transmittal emails will be sent through MOVEit, a managed file transfer software solution for securing the exchange of data between the CSU Chancellor’s Office and the CSU campuses. IP Coordinators will also be able to view academic reports in TDS approximately one week after academic reports are transmitted to their campus registrar/records office. IP Coordinators without access to MOVEit are asked to refer to the two documents below that explain access to MOVEit.
- MOVEit Access for CSU Staff: This handout provides instructions on how to access MOVEit for new users at CSU campuses.
- Quick Reference Guide for CSU IP and Exchange Coordinators: This is a two-page guide that covers the basics of retrieving documents that contain sensitive data from CSU IP that are transmitted through MOVEit.
