Eligibility to Study Abroad

Studying abroad takes planning and preparation. To avoid unnecessary stress, give yourself at least a year to prepare. A lack of planning not only limits options, it also limits access to many scholarships that may have deadlines of up to a year in advance of program start dates. Some programs, such as short-term summer programs and faculty-led study abroad tours have shorter deadlines, but popular programs and internship placements abroad may reach capacity enrollment six months or more before their start dates.

We expect students who study abroad to uphold the academic and behavioral standards enforced here on campus. To be approved for a study abroad program, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Possess and maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0
  • Be in good university standing
  • Have completed at least one year of full-time study at Oklahoma City University. 


All participants of OCU-sponsored or approved programs abroad are required to attend a pre-departure orientation. Sessions are scheduled at least once each semester, and participants will be advised of specific orientation dates.
