As you form your academic and career goals, incorporate planning for a learning abroad experience into your advising and career counseling appointments, as well as visits with faculty. That way your study, service-learning, work, intern, or volunteer experience will be fundamentally linked to your career interests and degree program.
Use the Academic Plannign for Study Abroad (APSA) form to structure your academic planning. All instructions you will need are on the form.
Academic credit is awarded for successful completion of coursework on any of the programs listed on the Learning Abroad Center website or in the catalog. Credit is also awarded for completion of courses on non-promoted affiliated programs or outside programs with prior approval. Participation in non-academic activities such as work, interning, volunteering or teaching abroad does not result in credit.
Global Identity: Connecting Your International Experience to Your Future is an optional 1-credit online course that helps you process your overseas experience and apply what you've learned upon your return. The course assists you in reflecting on multiple layers of cross-cultural experience and marketing your study abroad experience for future goals.
Outlined in these policies, you'll find academic details, including credit load, academic standing, grading, the University of Minnesota's acceptance of coursework, and more.
