ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS & POLICIES 

The following are eligibility requirements governing student participation in Endicott College study abroad programs:

Class Standing

To participate in an Endicott College semester study abroad program, students must have at least sophomore standing at the time of participation in the program. Junior class-standing may be required for some programs. (Please check with the Office of International Education for more information.) Freshmen and senior students, with the appropriate academic background, may apply for summer and intersession programs.

Grade Point Average

To apply to an Endicott College study abroad program, students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of a 2.5 or higher.  Depending on the program, some institutions may require a higher GPA.  Students should check the minimum GPA program requirements before applying. 

Academic Background

Students must be in good academic standing at the time of application.  Students who are on scholastic probation are not eligible to participate.

Program Specific Requirements

Some study abroad programs have requirements in addition to class standing and minimum GPA. These requirements may include: a minimum level of proficiency in a foreign language, specific course pre-requisites, copies of official transcripts, etc.  Please look to see if your program of interest has any special requirements and meet with your study abroad advisor to discuss. 

Full-Time Enrollment While Studying Abroad

Students must be enrolled full-time while participating in an Endicott College semester-long study abroad program.

Study Abroad Program Participation

In order to be accepted into a study abroad program, students must agree to participate in the entire program (all class sessions and program-related activities of the study abroad program) and satisfy all Endicott College admission and course requirements.

Conduct Background and Clearance

The Office of International Education collaborates with the Office of Student Affairs to review the conduct records of all Endicott students applying to the programs and reserves the right to deny acceptance to students who have problematic or questionable conduct histories. Students must be clear of any conduct probation prior to participating in any study abroad program and probationary terms cannot coincide with the intended study abroad term (ex: students who apply to study abroad in fall 2013 cannot be on probation for any portion of the fall 2013 semester and must be clear of any probation prior to the program start date).  All students will have their student conduct record reviewed the semester prior to the intended study abroad term. These reviews will take place periodically up until departure and although an application status may read "accepted", this could be revoked at any time for conduct infractions that occur prior to departure.

Any student with a conduct record that is cause for concern will be contacted directly by the Office of International Education.  It is in the student's best interest to immediately notify the Office of International Education if any conduct infraction occurs prior to departure.  Students who are deemed ineligible to participate in a study abroad program will be withdrawn from the program and will be required to pay any fees associated with their withdrawal (program deposit, program fee, etc.) per the Refund & Payment Policy. No exceptions.

Program Acceptance and Commitment

The Office of International Education accepts students to study abroad programs once the deadline has passed. After students have been accepted to the study abroad program, they must decide to commit or withdraw within one week.  During this one-week period, students can withdraw their application without penalty. If students do not submit their official program withdrawal in writing to the Office of International Education before the one-week period ends, their enrollment in the study abroad program will be considered confirmed and they are committed to participate.  Students who withdraw after the one-week grace period ends, will be held responsible for any application fees and other fees that the Office of International Education may incur. 

Description of Application Statuses

Please note that there are different application statuses and students are responsible for understanding the implications of their status. Below is a description of the application statuses used by the Office of International Education.  Students should refer to this list to clarify thier application status as indicated on their application:

Pending: Student is still in the process of applying and/or awaiting review from the Office of International Education 
Accepted: Student has been accepted by Endicott College only, and NOT necessarily the partner abroad.
Committed: This will appear once a student has been accepted and the student has selected "Committ" on his or her application.  This means that the student intends to study abroad and is aware of any additional application materials that the program abroad may require.  If the student does not select "Committed," he or she must still notify the Office of International of Education on his or her intent.  Otherwise, the student will still be considered as studying abroad. 
Waitlisted: The student has been waitlisted and may still be considered for acceptance if other students drop out of the program
Rejected: A students application has been denied due to a low GPA, misconduct record, poor application, and/or poor references.
