Expand your horizons, bring your course work to life, learn more about yourself, the world and your country; these are just a few reasons why students pursue education abroad opportunities. Study abroad programs are designed to enhance students' personal, professional, social, academic, and cultural discovery.

How to Receive Class Credit for Studying Abroad
- Students should download the information on the courses they would take in whatever program they choose to pursue abroad.
- They need to bring the courses/descriptions to the Registrar's for review.
- The Registrar will review the courses, in conjunction with the appropriate department head (ex. if the course is an English course, the Registrar would see the head of the English department) to determine course equivalency or transferability of courses.
- Any course that is transferable will be given a grade of pass/fail.
