Eligibility and Deadlines

Eligibility

To participate in an exchange at Memorial, we are looking at this basic criteria:

  1. Completion of at least one year (30 credit hours) of academic study at Memorial
  2. A cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 (out of 4)
  3. A completed application for outbound exchange submitted by the required deadline, including references and letter of intent

Each faculty, school, and department may have additional criteria. It is best to speak with your academic coordinator in your individual faculty to ensure you are meeting the requirements of your department for exchange participation.

We do not recommend exchange participation in your last semester of study. This is because the semesters at our partner schools do not overlap with Memorial's semesters precisely. Also, there are usually delays in issuing the official transcript from the partner school. This will result in delays in your anticipated graduation date.
