Is there a minimum grade average required to apply to study abroad? Can I still apply if my average is below the requirement?

A 70% cumulative average (the average of all your course taken at Guelph) is necessary to apply to a Field School or Exchange Program. Because study abroad programs are academic programs and the application process is competitive your marks do count. We will accept applications with cumulative averages lower than 70% if there are extenuating circumstances such as illness that resulted in a lower cumulative average, you must submit a Minimum Average Exemption Request form to CIP. Applications with an average lower than 67% will not be accepted.
