Do you have to be vaccinated in order to go?
Sean Truehart
39:04
No, you can withdraw after applying, but you have to be careful because there are dates when certain things become non-refundable, if you withdraw after those dates, those things will be non-refundable and we can’t help you, but we make sure you are aware of the dates, they are posted on the program page mark is showing right now
Sean Truehart
39:31
And yes, you do have to be vaccinated due to current Quinnipiac requirements of all students to be vaccinated

Gabby Goldberg

Are you allowed to choose who you live with, if you know someone who is also going the same time as you ?
Sean Truehart
41:28
You do get some say in choosing who you live with, but we are also constrained by the rooms we get, some rooms have more bedrooms than others, so we are restricted by the rooms our housing complex gives us, but you will have some say in who you live with
Sean Truehart
42:45
some apartments have more bedrooms than others ^

^^
Sean Truehart
49:04
The application involves a number of forms you have to fill out and the application is all online through our website
Sean Truehart
49:21
yes, for both this coming fall and spring you have to apply now
Shayna
49:56
Is there a way to access and start the application before the 11th
Sean Truehart
50:09
Dining is just on your own, they do not have a meal plan, you have kitchens in your apartments and you can go out or cook for yourself, there are a number of convenient grocery stores around the city
Sean Truehart
51:13
No, you cannot fill out the application early, because we may have to move students into either semester and we are doing that based on who applies first, we want to make sure everyone is ready to apply at the same time to keep everything fair, so everyone will get access to the application at the same time
Sean Truehart
52:20
You will be filling out the application over the next month or two, we will make forms available to you as we go so we don’t just bombard you with all the forms at once
Shayna
52:49
Do study abroad students have to pay for a gym membership at the university
Sean Truehart
52:55
As for cover protocols, that is tough to answer because they are constantly changing, we will have a better idea once we get closer
Sean Truehart
53:42
You do not have to pay for a gym membership, there is a gym you will have access to as a student, it is about 10 minutes from the university, they have a great facility with many features such as a track, swimming pool, rock climbing area, etc
Will G
53:49
can you go if you are a 3+1 student
Will G
54:10
and if so what are the requirments
Sean Truehart
54:26
Any program can go, you just need to make sure you meet with you advisor and make sure you have the flexibility to take a semester abroad, make sure you stay on pace to graduate
Sean Truehart
55:14
Typically, students save there general credits, UC credits, for their study abroad semester to ensure they have the most flexibility, so make sure you set up a meeting with you advisors!
Aiyana Baker
55:20
Can any major go to any of the countries or can only specific majors go to specific programs?
Sean Truehart
55:21
their^
Sean Truehart
56:41
For the most part, any major can go to any country, but again you need to make sure you have some flexibility, if you have already taken all of your general credits and UC credits and all you have left are major and core requirements, it may be more difficult to study abroad than if you have some flexibility in what courses you take and what credits you have left, its really all about meeting with your advisors and making sure you can study abroad while staying on track
