Study Abroad Eligibility

Students can study abroad beginning the first semester of their sophomore year or, in special cases, the second semester of their freshman year. Transfer students can travel abroad beginning their second semester. Additionally, they must:

  • Identify a clear purpose for studying abroad
  • Have a GPA of 2.5 or above
  • See their academic advisor to discuss study abroad options and ensure courses apply toward their major or core requirements
  • Submit all required forms, including the Personal Release, Student Acknowledgement, Study Abroad Application, and Health Clearance. If a student answers “Yes” to any question on the Health Clearance form, their medical provider must completely fill out the Provider Clearance form before they can travel abroad.

Tuition and Fees

Students pay their regular tuition, room and board, and fees through Mount Saint Vincent, while the College coordinates payment to the affiliated provider of the approved study abroad program.
