To participate in a Calvin Exchange off-campus semester program, you must have sophomore status and a minimum GPA of 2.5. You must first complete an online application for Calvin and then talk with the director of off-campus programs.

Calvin exchange programs include Hoogeschool Zeeland (Netherlands) and Handong University (Korea).


For students planning to do an exchange program in the fall semester, the application deadline is mid-March.

For students planning to do an exchange program in the spring semester, the application deadline is June 1.

Be sure to give yourself enough time to complete the application process for the program you are choosing. Remember that although the Calvin Application is online, it can take several days to complete, as you have to wait for various approvals across campus.
