Students must have a cumulative G.P.A of 2.5 or higher and be in good academic and disciplinary standing. If a student falls out of good academic or disciplinary standing at any time prior to going abroad, they will no longer be permitted to study abroad. Students who do not have a cumulative G.P.A of a 2.5 but feel they should still be considered for study abroad may petition to do so. Please note that many of our approved programs have a GPA requirement that is higher than 2.5, and this should be taken into account when selecting a program.
When Can Students Study Abroad?
The preferred time to go abroad is fall of junior year. Students who wish to study abroad as a sophomore or during a spring semester must petition to do so. Study abroad during the second semester of one's senior year is prohibited.
Students are required to submit a completed application form, a one page statement of purpose, course descriptions and course approvals for each course they wish to take, a copy of their passport, and a signature from their acdemic advisor.
