Eligibility

What are the eligibility requirements for studying abroad?

Eligibility requirements vary by program.  It is important to understand the specific program requirements before applying.  All programs have a GPA requirement.  Other requirements could include course pre-requisites, field of study, foreign language proficiency, class standing, and citizenship, among others.

What is the minimum GPA?

The University of Arizona minimum GPA requirement to study abroad is 2.5.  However there are some programs which require a 3.0 or higher.  Each program webpage lists the GPA requirement.

Do I need to speak a foreign language?

Learning a language is an important part of living in this global age, and we highly encourage students to study a foreign language.  However, many programs in non-English speaking countries do offer courses in English as well as beginning, intermediate, and advanced language instruction. Language proficiency is not always a pre-requisite for studying abroad so check program webpages for specific language requirements.
