You must successfully complete two terms with at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA at your primary college in order to study abroad or participate in an exchange program. If you are making a request and have only completed one term, you will be required to submit additional information and your request will be reviewed on a case by case basis. If you start your Study Abroad/Exchange term before the previous term’s grades were reported, and you earned a cumulative GPA less than 2.0, the Foundation is not responsible for funding the Study Abroad/Exchange term. Any Learning Community requirements missed because of the study abroad/exchange experience must be completed upon return.
