Eligibility Requirements: 2.5 GPA, academic advisor approval, registration in course.
Scholarship Eligibility: Scholarships are awarded to help reduce the cost of the travel fee, which is an additional charge as part of student’s registration for the program. The AU Abroad scholarship ranges up to $1,000.00 and is awarded upon eligibility, GPA and financial need. To be eligible for the AU Abroad scholarship, students must be a junior or senior. However, students who are sophomores in the nursing and/or education major are eligible for the AU Abroad scholarship. (This exception is made because nursing and education majors have limited availability for classes in their junior and senior year.) First-year students are not eligible for the AU Abroad scholarship but can register and take any international studies course with academic approval.
Application and Registration Deadlines: Students will register for the classes with their normal registration in the fall semester for the spring 2023 semester. Students will need to speak with their academic advisor before registration to evaluate what degree requirements for graduation this course meets. This is designed as an IS 398 course which normally meets the intercultural inquiry requirement.
