Study Abroad Eligibility Requirements

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.

Grade Point Average

To apply to an Endicott College study abroad program, students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. Students are advised to check the minimum GPA requirement for their desired program, which is listed on each program brochure page, as each institution has its own requirements.

Academic Background
Students must be in good academic standing at the time of application. Students on academic 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 prerequisites, 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 and must be taking an equivalent of 12 Endicott credits at minimum.

Study Abroad Program Participation
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. Students will find the list of admission materials and participation requirements in their application.

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 participate in a semester abroad and/or faculty-led trip and reserves the right to deny acceptance to students who have problematic or questionable conduct histories. Students must be cleared of any conduct probations before participating in any study abroad program, and probationary terms cannot coincide with the intended study abroad term (ex: students who apply to study abroad for the fall semester cannot be on probation for any portion of the semester and must be clear of any probation before the program start date).  All students will have their student conduct record reviewed the semester before 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, and students with three or more conduct issues will be automatically waitlisted for the semester-long or short-term application. It is in the student's best interest to immediately notify the Office of International Education if any conduct infraction occurs before 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.
