International Programs

Getting Started


We encourage students to start planning for their global education opportunity as early as possible. 


General Global education requirements:

  • Students must be in good academic standing; there is a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8 to study abroad. Faculty-led honors courses require a 3.4 minimum GPA or permission from the faculty leader.
  • Students must be in good disciplinary standing.


To Get Started:

  1. Explore the Merrimack Global Programs for semester, and short-term opportunities to get an idea of programs that fit your academic needs.
  2. Stop by the Office of Global Education to meet with GEO staff or contact us at
  3. Meet with your academic advisor to discuss how a global program will fit with your academic schedule and goals. 
  4. If you are interested in a Spring 2017 semester or short-term global program, you can apply here!
