Short-Term Study Abroad

All faculty interested in leading a short-term study abroad program should contact the Off-Campus Study Office. Click here for more information about short-term study abroad

Credit Questions

Prior to participation in study abroad, admitted students are required to obtain pre-estimation of credit from appropriate departments. Students who have petitioned to study on programs that are not currently approved by OCS must seek pre-estimation of credit before submitting their petition to the Off-Campus Study Committee. For all credit requests, we use the online OCS Credit Evaluation, which faculty and staff can access via AppGarden.  Here is more information on OCS Credits

Students are directed by OCS to inquire with academic departments about any departmental requirements, including pre-requisites or department-specific study abroad forms they should be aware of.  Credit evaluators can also leave comments for the student in the online system. 

OCS also handles all Transfer Credit requests, for work done elsewhere during a leave of absence, or during summer. For all transfer credit requests, we use the online Transfer Credit Evaluation, which faculty and staff can access via AppGarden

New Study Abroad Programs

Academic departments should contact the Off-Campus Study Office with any suggestions concerning approving study abroad programs, or removing previously approved programs from the database of approved programs maintained by the Off-Campus Study Office. Departments or individuals are encouraged to discuss ideas for new study abroad opportunities with the Off-Campus Study Office as well.

Visiting Study Abroad Programs

The Off-Campus Study Office has a small budget that can be used to offset some of the costs of faculty site visits to study abroad programs, normally limited to the costs of local transportation, meals, and accommodation. Interested faculty members should contact the Off-Campus Study Office for further information.
