Study Abroad Language and GPA Requirements

GPA Requirement

All of our study abroad programs require that you have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. A few programs require a 3.0 GPA.

Language Requirement

There is no study abroad language requirement. If JCCC teaches the language of the country where you are going, we suggest - but do not require - that you take a semester before you go. 

You'll be glad you did, because having some basic language skills will make your time abroad more rewarding.

In most cases, you will also study that language for at least one course during your time abroad.

Your other courses will be taught in English.


There is a language requirement to study in Japan. Get the details and read more about studying abroad in Japan.

Why Study Abroad?

JCCC Student in Africa

"I have fallen in love with West Africa and I think Africa in general. I now know that I could work and live a very simple life in the developing world. I really didn't know what to expect coming out but I have learned so much."

JCCC Student Studying in Greece

"I learned so much more about life, people, and myself in Greece than I ever have at home. It was wonderful, the best experience."
