You must have a passport in order to study abroad. If you do not yet have a passport, the O’Neill International Office encourages you to apply for your passport as soon as possible.
You can find information concerning how to apply for your first passport or renew your passport on the U.S. Department of State website.
The passport application requires photos which can be taken on campus at the Office of International Services (Poplars Building) or at the main Bloomington Post Office (520 South Walnut St.).
At the main Bloomington Post Office, appointments are required to submit a passport application. Appointments are available 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday and 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturday.
Appointments can be scheduled online at the Office of International Services to submit a passport application or to take passport photos. Appointments are available 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, Monday through Thursday and 9:00 am – 4:30 pm on Friday. Please note that passport applications are only accepted until 4:00 pm and the passport acceptance facility is closed on all university holidays.
