Eligibility Requirements

To participate in a SAGE program, Scripps College requires:

  • completion of Core I, II and III and Writing 50,
  • a minimum 9.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA),
  • previous college-level study with a 9.0 average in the host country language if that  language is currently taught in Claremont.  (Requirements vary by program, see Language Prerequisites for details.)

Some university programs have higher cumulative GPA requirements and students must meet the higher requirement in order to apply. Students with a minimum of an 8.0 GPA may petition for those programs from the approved list for which they meet the program’s GPA requirement.

In order to enroll in upper-division courses in your major at most foreign universities, students will need a strong background in their subject area. Students should have completed 3-5 courses in their major prior to program participation. For certain study sites, an area study course may be required.

Students on academic or disciplinary probation or with delinquent student accounts are not eligible to participate.
