At this point you have probably already chosen your travel destination and your study abroad program. Now you must complete the STUDY ABROAD APPROVAL form and return it to the Provost Office.
• You must have completed two semesters of university work to participate in an overseas program.
• You must have a minimum GPA of a 2.50 or higher to go abroad, however, higher GPA requirements vary by program. Check with your program for more details.
• Students on academic or disciplinary probation or suspension are not eligible for study abroad.
APPLYING TO AN EXTERNAL STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM:
Once you are approved for a study abroad experience, you can begin the online application process for the program of your choice by going to their website and following their instructions on how to apply to their program. It is important that you adhere to all deadlines or you risk not being accepted for your desired term. They will also instruct you on how and when to apply for your passport and Visa if required.
APPLYING FOR A FACULTY-LED PROGRAM:
You should contact the Professor directly for program descriptions, application instructions and deadlines. These programs are generally program specific and may have language requirements and/or limited enrollments so don’t delay!
If your status changes for any of these programs during the admission and enrollment process, please notify the Office of the Provost or the Professor for a faculty-led program.
If you have questions about study abroad, please contact Shannon Halicki for assistance ([email protected], 304-336-8075, or Library L24).
