All students with sophomore standing at the beginning of the Fall term and GPA of 2.5 or higher are eligible to apply. The Fall program is open to all majors, years, and university. The Spring program is not open to students outside of Virginia Tech and is open to all majors (focus on business and communication).
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. This means that the program tends to fill up before Thanksgiving. Submit your application as soon as possible to ensure your spot for acceptance and attendance! We will begin to review applications at the end of September.
Participating in study abroad does not allow a student any exceptions to meeting Policy 91 requirements. It is the students’ responsibility to understand their college's specific Policy 91 requirements.
Scholarships & Financial Aid
The program offers up to four $1000 scholarships supported by the Emily Specchio Foundation. Financial aid for the program may also be available through other Virginia Tech channels. There is more information about scholarships at the VT Education Abroad site.
