Visiting and Exchange Student eligibility 

Visiting and exchange students must be enrolled full-time in a university or college and be in good academic standing at the time of application (3.0 GPA, or equivalent). Students must provide official academic transcripts and/or test scores, unless submitted by a partner university International Office. Students must also provide proof of financial support as part of the application for admission before immigration documentation can be issued by the College.
