All students with sophomore standing at the beginning of the Fall term and GPA of 2.5 or higher are eligible to apply. 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.
Go to the VT Education Abroad site for the program to complete the application process. Click the "Apply Now" button and follow the instructions. We will begin to review applications in September.
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! Final deadline is December 15.
