Off-campus study is an opportunity open to sophomore, junior and senior students with appropriate academic preparation, motivation, and interest in the relevant area. Students in all major fields may participate in this program, but students must present a rationale for doing so which is well connected to their academic preparation. Students currently on disciplinary, social, or academic probation are not eligible to apply for, or participate in, off-campus study programs. In addition, students with outstanding disciplinary fines, service hours and/or education program requirements are not eligible to participate in the program. Second-semester seniors must petition to participate.
Admission to the program is based on the quality of the application. Along with a coherent academic rationale for participation in the this program, candidates must present a record of academic performance that demonstrates ability to meet the challenges of off-campus study. A 3.0 GPA is required to participate in the James Cook University, Australia Program. Applications below a 2.8 GPA will not be considered. Candidates for the Australia program must also present evidence of maturity, responsibility and cultural sensitivity.
