Eligibility: Minimum 3.0 GPA. Students must also meet all other study abroad eligiblity requirements as outlined in Creighton's Study Abroad Policies & Procedures.
Financial Aid: Participants will pay all fees directly to AmidEast. If eligible, federal financial aid is portable. Please check with the CU Financial Aid Office for specific inquiries. Because Creighton is a partner institution, Creighton students who participate will receive a small discount off the overall program cost.
Courses: Course selection varies by program. The Amideast website has detailed academic information for each program.
Program Duration: The length of an academic semester or term differs by country. Students should carefully review the AmidEast information pertaining to "Program Dates" for each institution of interest to ensure that the semester abroad does not overlap with the next semester at Creighton. For example, in some countries their Fall semester runs through early-February, which would prevent students from beginning the Spring semester at Creighton in mid-January.
On-Site Assistance: Each AmidEast program site has a coordinator who will assist you during your stay. Services that the Host Coordinator will provide differs by program.
