Admissions Policy

Meeting or exceeding the minimum cumulative GPA requirement does not guarantee admission to a program. Admissions decisions are based on a full review of the file, including the academic recommendation, the personal statement, and academic and disciplinary records. Once admitted, students who are not in good standing or determined by the University not to be in compliance with any academic requirement or other rule, requirement or procedure of the University may be precluded from participation in a Suffolk Study Abroad Program. All admission decisions are final.
