Applicants must meet the eligibility requirements established by Concordia University.
Meeting the basic eligibility requirements for a semester or year abroad does not guarantee admission to a study abroad program.
- Students participating in the study abroad program must be in good academic status and not on academic probation and must have attained a sophomore, junior or senior status. Transfer students must be here at least one semester before studying abroad. Seniors need to apply to graduate before they leave and have the Registrar’s permission to participate in the exchange program.
- (Paris Program only) Students participating in the Dual Degree Program must have a cumulative GPA of 3.30, have Junior status, successful completion of BUS201, ACT 211, ACT 212, completed a minimum of 3 additional Business courses, received recommendations from both the Business faculty and Student Services, and must meet the admission requirements from the other school. See Office of Global Programs for assistance (ext. 3471).
- Students must choose courses abroad which can be used to fulfill program, major, minor, or elective requirements and should be aware that participating in a study abroad program may delay the completion of their course of study at CUI.
- Only two semesters of exchange units can be used to earn credits for graduation. Exchange programs are generally not approved for the final semester of a student’s senior year.
- It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the necessary documents required to travel abroad; student visa or passport. Please see Faith McKinney (ext. 3471) in the Office of Global Programs.
- Prior to the awarding of financial aid, students must have completed the study abroad application and received approval to study abroad from the Office of Global Programs.
- Students who have their applications to study abroad approved will be assessed a $100 administrative fee.
- Students may use state, federal and Concordia financial aid to fund Concordia Sponsored study abroad programs. Students are able to study abroad through other programs and federal and state financial aid is allowed to fund study abroad, but not institutional aid.
