The School of Architecture encourages study abroad by offering summer programs in China, Italy, India, and Switzerland, and as well as a Fall program in London. To study abroad, students must be in academic good standing. Further, to earn degree credit students must have a cumulative U.Va. GPA of no less than 2.500 at either the point of application or at the end of the term prior to the commencement of study abroad. These standards apply both to UVA study programs and study abroad programs under auspices of another institution or organization.

Several programs administered by the School of Architecture are competitive, and priority is given to applicants with a higher GPA. Applicants to semester and exchange programs should have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.500.
