GPA Eligibility Requirements

To begin your application, you will need to fill out a Pre-Application form and schedule an advising session with a staff member from the Office of Global & Off Campus Education. You must complete these steps before you are able to submit an application.
There are space limits on the spring and fall semester (250 each term). Since applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, it is possible for the spring or fall term to close prior to the end of the advising/application period. Applications will be reviewed and processed on a rolling basis during the advising periods.
Since space is limited each semester, it will be important to meet with your Global Education Advisor early in the advising period to ensure you can move forward with the application process.
You must stay in contact with your Global Education Advisor throughout the advising and application process.
Students interested in studying abroad will need to meet with their study abroad advisor during the advising period for their term abroad in order to begin a study abroad application.
