Academic Expectations

In order to participate in North's Study Abroad programs, you must meet the following requirements:

  • At least 17 years old (18 for some programs)
  • Have completed at least 12 college-level credits
  • Minimum GPA of 2.5
  • A valid passport for travel outside of the U.S.


The Study Abroad Office asks students to disclose any need for accommodation (physical, psychological and/or academic).

Academic Expectations

Study abroad means just that - study while living abroad!

North Seattle College wants you to take advantage of your international experience and have fun, but please keep in mind that the programs are academic! All students are required to take 15 credits during their study abroad program (except the short-term programs).

You are expected to attend classes, do homework and take tests just as if you were on the campus at North. All grades are reported to the registrar and calculated into your overall GPA, whether they count toward graduation or not.
