Traditional Undergraduate Student Requirements

Semester at Sea requires students to meet our standards to cultivate a learning experience worthy of traveling the world. We welcome students of any sex, gender identity, race, disability status, veteran status, nationality, or ethnicity, to apply  for admission.  Please take a moment to review what we are looking for in a student.

  • Students must be enrolled full-time in a degree-granting program at an accredited college/university (domestic or international)
  • Students must have completed at least one full term at the post-secondary level
  • Students must demonstrate at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA and be in good academic standing, although in some cases, additional evidence of academic support may be requested to review an application holistically
  • Students must have their school’s judicial affairs office complete a disciplinary clearance form at time of application
  • Students must demonstrate their writing skills in a 300-500 word essay as indicated on the application
