• Study Away Eligibility:

    Hamline University and the GEC want to make sure your time away is successful for both your personal growth and your academics as well! That is why we have different eligibility requirements.

    If you don’t meet these, that doesn’t mean you can’t go. The GEC wants to see everyone have a study away experience, so we’ll work on a case-by-case basis if needed.

    Also remember that some eligibility requirements for specific programs are not as flexible. Each program can have additional requirements such as pre-resequite courses, or a minimum number of applicants. Please check the individual program application for those potential additional requirements.

    Semester and Year Long Program Hamline students must:

    • Be in good academic and social standing with Hamline University
    • Have a GPA of 3.0 at time of application, or be granted permission by the GEC
    • Complete all application materials from the GEC and program
