Academic Policies

Students going abroad for a semester or academic year are expected to take a full course load of at least 12 credits per semester while on study abroad or exchange. Each program may set a maximum number of credits that students may take per term, generally ranging from 15-18.

Students who wish to apply their financial aid package toward their study abroad program must ensure that courses taken abroad will satisfy degree requirements needed to graduate. You will not be able to access financial aid if your coursework does not fulfill graduation requirement.

Students planning to study away for their final semester must ensure they have received approval from their academic department. It is the student's responsbility to complete an academic appeal if required by their department.
