Academics and Credit Info While Abroad

While you’re abroad, keep these important notes pertaining to academics in mind:

  • Take your classes for a letter/number grade at your host institution
  • Earn the equivalent of a C or higher to earn any type of credit—including elective hours
  • Save ALL of your syllabi and coursework!
  • If necessary, request a transcript
  • Make sure your transcript includes actual letter/number grades
