Can I study abroad even though my high school grades were horrible?

I only had a 2.0 GPA in high school, which I graduated seven years ago. I want to study for a few months in Japan. Will my low GPA prevent me from doing that?

    Depends on the program. Some require a 3.0 others a 2.0. Talk to the administrators of the program you wish to attend. You may be able to teach English there, but they also may require a bachelor's degree for visa requirements, if just going is your ultimate goal. If all else fails take a couple classes at your local community college beef up your GPA and use that to enter into a study abroad program.
