Students participating in a summer or winter program abroad must meet the minimum GPA requirements of the program they are applying to. Most programs have a minimum cumulative GPA requirement of 2.5 however some programs have a GPA requirement of 2.0. All students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing. If a student falls out of good academic or disciplinary standing at any time prior to going abroad, they will no longer be permitted to study abroad.
When Can Students Study Abroad?
Students are permitted to study abroad on short term programs at any time during their tenure at Saint Anselm College starting freshman year.
Students are required to submit an initial online application form and answer a question regarding their goals for their semester abroad. Students are also required to complete a number of Enrollment Forms by the deadline outlined in their acceptance letter. Enrollment Forms include the following: Program Acceptance Letter, Course Approval Form with course descriptions and department chair signatures, Passport Copy, Waiver of Liability & Release, Communication Authorization Form and a copy of your Program Acceptance Letter. These forms are all available on the Study Abroad Application Portal.
After you are notified by the Office of International Programs that you have been "Approved" to study abroad, you will then need to apply to your program and follow the application instructions for the specific program provider or host institution. Students are responsible for the application fee required by the provider organization or host institution. Please note that acceptance into the Saint Anselm College Study Abroad Program is not a guarantee that you will be accepted by the study abroad provider or host institution.
Simply clicking the "Apply" button from the SAC application website does not complete the application process. It is your responsibility to make sure you have filled out all required and relevant application and enrollment materials necessary for the program you wish to attend.
