To ensure that you are prepared to study in your future host country, Columbia College students must be cleared to study abroad prior to leaving. The clearance process entails gaining permission from Columbia College to represent Columbia overseas. The College maintains the authority over students’ participation in study-abroad programs and upholds standards for all potential candidates.
A review of each student’s academic and disciplinary records is conducted as part of this process. Students on academic or disciplinary probation are not permitted to study abroad during the term of their probation.
The following eligibility requirements for study abroad are designed to help you make the most out of your time abroad and to link your international study experience with your academic life on campus.
