Planning to take a summer course abroad? Interested in transfer credit?

You are strongly encouraged to apply for preapproval (if you do not receive preapproval, there is no guarantee that you will receive credit).

Preapproval for Summer Courses Abroad

  • Review transfer credit guidelines.

  • Complete the Transfer Credit Application Form and obtain approvals/signatures from the appropriate department chair(s). You do not need to seek out the dean of international programs for his signature; he will review your Transfer Credit Application and supporting materials after they are complete and turned in to International Programs.

  • Return the Transfer Credit Application Form to the Office of International Programs along with all required supporting documentation, including a summer session calendar, a course meeting schedule, and any relevant information about the study abroad program.

  • Complete the Summer Study Abroad Application Form.

  • If you have questions about programs and/or credit, you should meet with Stacey Thebodo, assistant director of international programs.

The deadline to apply for preapproval is the last day of spring semester.
