SAGE Eligibility and Credit


To be eligible for participation on a SAGE program, Scripps College requires:
  • Completion of Core I, II and III, 
  • Meeting the GPA requirement set by the program. Some university programs have a higher cumulative GPA requirement because previous student grades demonstrate that level is necessary to succeed in the host institution classes. Most programs require a minimum 9.0 GPA at the time of application but some programs accept a 7.75 and above while others may have higher requirements, up to an 11.2 at Oxford.  Note:The GPA requirement is determined by the program and Scripps is not able to change this.
  • Completion of the minimum level for previous college language study if a language is currently taught in Claremont.  (Requirements vary by language, see Language Prerequisites for details.) 
  • Enrollment in one specified class at most programs, either a language class or an area studies course providing cultural context for the host culture.
  • A strong background in a subject area to meet class pre-requisites for upper-division courses in your major at most foreign universities. Students should have completed 2-4 courses in their major prior to program participation if planning to take upper division courses.
Students on academic or disciplinary probation or with delinquent student accounts are not eligible to participate.
