General Requirements for Short-Term Programs
To study abroad, you'll need:
- A 3.0 cumulative GPA - All students traveling abroad are required to maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA, in addition to whatever academic requirements instated by the relevant program affiliate. Students who maintain a cumulative GPA between 2.7 and 2.99 may submit a Request for Waiver of GPA Requirement to the OMGE. Quinnipiac University can permit these waivers at its sole discretion.
- No existing or pending conduct sanctions for the time you're abroad - A student with a conduct sanction or who has one placed on them after being accepted to study abroad must submit a Request for Waiver of Conduct Clearance form. If the sanction is applied to the semester in which the student intends to study abroad, the student will be ineligible to study abroad. In special circumstances, QU may grant permission to study abroad in its sole discretion.
- To attend a Study Abroad Information Session - Each student who intends to study abroad must attend a full Study Abroad Information session prior to the semester in which they will study abroad. Any student who does not attend a session or leaves before the session's completion will not be eligible to travel. Information session dates are available on the OMGE's Study Abroad Portal.
- To take no more than two courses while abroad - Each student is limited to two courses taken abroad during his or her short term program. Students are not exempt from the Undergraduate Summer Credit Policy outlined in the Course Schedule and Registration Bulletin, which prohibits students from taking more than 7 credits during the summer/winter sessions. If more courses are requested, then the student must file a request for a variant procedure with the dean of their college or school.
