With prior approval from the Academic Office, students may earn credit for study abroad. Students must meet with an academic supervisor and develop an individual contract for their learning, including assignments to be completed for credit. Students must enroll for the units specified and complete all requirements before receiving credit. These units may be applied to general education, the major, and/or internship, depending on the focus of study and with approval from the Academic Office.
