Study Abroad Eligibility




Texas Tech students interested in studying abroad must meet the following requirements:


  • Be at least 18 years old by the time you go abroad.
  • Be a sophomore by years, not credits. Students who began as freshman at Texas Tech must complete two long semesters before becoming eligible to study abroad.  Transfer students must complete one semester.
  • Have a TTU GPA of 2.5 at the time of application.
    • Business students must have a 2.75 GPA if they wish to take business classes abroad.
    • Many programs have a higher GPA requirement.
  • Be in good disciplinary standing at the time of applying to study abroad and remain so up to and including the study abroad term.
  • Students may not study abroad in the last 15 hours of their degree plan (the same semester they plan to graduate) unless they participate in a faculty-led program or a program at the TTU Center in Sevilla.
  • Students may study abroad in the last 30 hours of their degree plan (their penultimate semester) if they meet with the dean of their college and receive permission to do so.
  • Students postponing graduation to study abroad must be enrolled at Texas Tech during the term in which they graduate.
