Students are required to consult with their academic advisor to formulate a detailed academic plan and course load for every semester of study abroad. The course preapproval form must be filled out prior to departure. This step is essential in aiding the proper transfer of academic credits earned abroad. For current information on courses, please refer to the host university’s published materials.
