Academic Policies and Eligibility

Queens students can participate in multiple international experiences during their undergraduate careers. They can apply their JBIP fund to one program during their time at Queens if they meet the requirements listed below.

Who is eligible to use JBIP funds?

At the time of application applicants should: 

  • Be full-time degree-seeking undergraduates paying comprehensive tuition
  • Be sophomores in no less than their fourth regular semester of University study*
  • Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.000; You must have this minimum GPA when you apply for a program, when you enroll and take the JBIP prep course, and/or the semester before you travel abroad

*First year students may apply to study abroad on Queens' summer business programs in France and China and language immersion programs if they wish to participate summer after sophomore year. They should contact the PCIE before the application deadline to request this exception and must adhere to all other deadlines and eligibility requirements.  First year students wishing to apply to faculty-led programs, internships, or semester abroad may do so on a space available basis if they are willing to pay out-of-pocket for the experience. They will then be able to use their JBIP funds for a second experience when they turn eligible.

In order to participate in study abroad all applicants must also: 

  • Be in good standing with the Honor Code in the semester they wish to travel abroad
  • Successfully complete the semester's work immediately prior to the program
  • Remain in good financial standing with the University
  • Agree to abide by all University rules and regulations governing study abroad

What if I am a transfer student?

Requirements and Qualifications for using JBIP Funds for Transfer Students

  • Transfer students must meet all of the qualifications listed above
  • Transfer students who pay comprehensive tuition must have be enrolled as full time students at Queens for four semesters to be eligible for JBIP funding
  • For every semester fewer than four full time semesters at Queens before graduating, the transfer student must pay a supplement of $800 in addition to any program supplement and the deposit.

What if I am a senior and have not participated yet?

If you are a senior and have not participated in the program we urge you to consider the faculty-led program that takes place over Winter Break with a Fall prep course.  If you wish to select a program that takes place in the summer after you graduate you must discuss your options with the Director. Students must be currently enrolled at Queens to participate in JBIP so the only options in the summer after Senior year require the student to defer their graduation to August. Students may petition to walk in the May graduation ceremony if they wish.    

What if I am a post-traditional student? 

Post-traditional students who meet eligibility requirements are welcome to participate as space is available. Post-traditional students do not receive JBIP funding so all costs are out-of-pocket. Options are available for all budgets. Please inquire about the full cost of programs with the PCIE.
