Policies and Procedures
The following requirements relate to Skidmore College policies for studying off-campus on a (non-Skidmore) Approved Program. Students interested in a a Skidmore program abroad are advised to check the requirements for that program. (NOTE: Some Approved Programs may require junior standing as a minimum or may have a strict GPA requirement of 3.0 or higher. Be sure to consult the information provided by the program provider for details.)
- Skidmore requires that students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.75 for off-campus study. Those who do not meet this requirement must petition the Committee
on Academic Standing (CAS) through Off-Campus Study & Exchanges to be considered for
off-campus study eligibility. CAS is responsible for final decisions regarding eligibility.
- Customarily, students study off-campus for a semester or year during their junior year. Students at other stages in their Skidmore education must submit non-junior petition materials with their applications.
