Generally, sophomores (second-semester), juniors, and seniors with a GPA of 2.5 or higher are eligible to participate in semester and academic year programs. Some programs, however, will require a higher GPA. Applications for most off campus programs must be completed by March 1 for summer, fall, academic year, and spring programs. For Luther-approved programs offered by other colleges, universities, and institutions there may be different requirements and deadlines. It is important to work closely with the Center for Global Learning staff.
