What are the eligibility requirements for the UB Peace Corps Program?

Students who are in good academic standing may apply to join the UB Peace Corps Prep program once they have successfully completed 30 credit hours of coursework.

U.S. citizenship is not a requirement of the UB Peace Corps Prep program. All students, regardless of citizenship status, may participate in the UB Peace Corps Prep program and will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Peace Corps.

However, individuals must hold U.S. citizenship to apply to serve as Peace Corps Volunteers after graduation.
