Students studying abroad

Study Abroad Eligibility

The architectural engineering study abroad summer programs are open to all regularly enrolled Penn State architectural engineering undergraduate students. Applicants must have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 2.50, be in good academic standing and show evidence of maturity, stability, adaptability, self-discipline, and strong academic motivation.

Students may extend their abroad experience through personally arranged travel after the conclusion of the program.

Student participants must participate in all informational and instructional sessions during the academic year at University Park. These sessions are considered part of the academic requirements.
