Choosing a Program

A few important things to consider while making the choice:

  • Academically appropriate program: courses and topics you need to take
  • Ability to substitute courses, major requirements and enrollment for the following semester after you come back to Southeast (you must talk to your advisor)
  • Program matches your language ability (some programs are available in English)
  • Ability to communicate in the country you’d like to visit
  • Length and type of travel
  • Location by country/city, setting, school size and community size
  • Personal health considerations: pre-existing health conditions, immunizations, insurance
  • Financial aid and scholarship availability

The minimum eligibility requirements are:

  • be in good standing (academic, disciplinary, financial)
  • earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 before participating in study abroad*
  • successful completion of at least two semesters of college-level coursework before participating in a program
  • obtain transfer credit and/or course pre-approval authorization*

* Check additional GPA requirements from your department/major as well as the program and the school you will choose for studying abroad.
