Eligibility


All Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs have the following baseline requirements:
  • You must have completed at least two full-time semesters of college-level study as a degree-seeking student prior to participation in a study abroad program and you must be at least 18 years of age by the program's departure date.
  • You must be in good academic standing. Good academic standing is determined by the Registrar's Office and is indicated at the end of your transcript each semester. Academic warning is a subcategory of good academic standing, so students on warning are still eligible.
  • You must be in good disciplinary standing. The Office of the Dean of Students and Housing determine your standing based on your disciplinary record.
  • You must maintain appropriate standards of behavior. Keep in mind that there are social aspects to the study abroad learning experience. Appropriate standards of behavior must be adhered to at all times. Please note: If you have had previous contact with GT study abroad programs, OIE, and/or the Office of the Dean of Students, applications may require additional time to be reviewed and processed.
  • You must complete a mandatory OIE Pre-Departure Orientation.

NOTE: Some programs have additional requirements including language level, minimum GPA, class standing, etc. Please refer to the program contact or to the application instructions for clarification on any additional requirements beyond those listed.

Essential Functions of Study Abroad


OIE is committed to supporting students with disabilities who plan to embark on an international experience. Along with this one of a kind experience comes with the knowledge that there are different cultural viewpoints and legal standards for disabilities throughout the world. Contact your study abroad advisor for additional details about the essential functions of this particular study abroad program. Notify the Office of International Education and the Office of Disability Services about your accommodation needs as soon as possible, but at a minimum, we suggest at least six months before your expected departure. Please note, that depending on your needs, it may take longer to determine if accommodations are in place for the program that you have chosen.
