Approved Programs by Destination
Summer (short-term) Programs
To apply to study off-campus for a semester, students must meet the following requirements:
• Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher
• Have completed at least 48 credit hours while studying off-campus
• Have a history of good conduct with the university. All conduct and alcohol violations will be evaluated by the Office of International Programs
Students who do not meet these requirements can still study abroad through faculty-led programs or short-term summer abroad programs.
It's never too early to begin researching off-campus study.
- Attend a Study Abroad 101 Session and complete the Intent to Study Abroad Quiz. Then, talk to your advisor to see how an off-campus experience would complement your academic plan of study. You also may read through the checklist and credit information below to help you get started.
