Make a Lifelong Learner Reservation


Semester at Sea operates on a rolling admission basis; therefore, there are no set application deadlines. However, we recommend applying as early as possible, up to one year in advance. Please note that when admitted to the program, you must confirm your intent to participate by submitting a $1,000 deposit, per participant by check or phone.

Staterooms are reserved on a first come, first served basis. We recommend that you submit your application and deposit at your earliest convenience. ISE must exercise judgment in the review of applications for all voyages. Background checks of applicants may be conducted at the discretion of ISE, and references may be requested.
