Qualifications & Requirements

Study abroad fair on the ETSU campus

At the time of application, all study abroad applicants are expected to meet the following requirements:

  • 2.5 GPA*
    A minimum GPA of 2.5 is required to study abroad through an ETSU program. If you do not meet this requirement, please let us know and we can help you find a direct enrollment opportunity. We are here to help, not to judge!

    *Some programs or individual classes require a GPA higher than 2.5,
    so you should check each program carefully before applying.

  • Good Academic Standing
    To enroll in a study aborad program, a student must maintain a good academic standing. During the application process, students give permission to the University to review their disciplinary records.

  • Sophomore Standing
    You must be at least a sophomore in order to participate in study abroad. This means you may study abroad as early as the summer after your freshman year! For transfer students, you must complete at least one semester at ETSU before studying abroad.

  • Financial Requirements
    No minimum financial requirements are needed to be able to apply for a study abroad program. Many times, financial aid and scholarships are applied to tuition even when studying in another country! Out of state students receive in-state tuition while studying abroad, as well.
  • Interview (some programs)
  • Faculty Recommendation Letter (some programs)

    The study abroad teamwill be able to answer program specific questions and discuss program costs, financial aid and available scholarships.
