To be eligible to participate in the Global Scholars Program, you must be in at least your sophomore year at W&M (social class). All majors and areas of interest are welcome.
You must be in good judicial and academic standing with the university. Students on academic probation during the time they are abroad are not eligible to participate in the Global Scholars Program. If you are on academic probation or on a medical withdrawal or underload, you must receive approval from the Dean of Students in order to participate in the Global Scholars Program.
Students who are on Disciplinary Probation or Deferred Suspension status are ineligible to participate in the Global Scholars Program during their first full semester in such status. If a sanction endures beyond one full semester (15 academic weeks), the student may petition the Director of Community Values & Restorative Practices for an exception. The Director, or designee, will make the final decision in consultation with the Global Scholars Program staff, and that decision will be final and is not appealable.
If you do not get approval, you may NOT participate in the Global Scholars Program. Students are required to report to the Global Research Institute and Washington Center any changes in academic or judicial status, even after acceptance into a program, which may affect their eligibility to participate in their accepted program, even if such a change results in a financial loss.
