Registration

Policy Statement

Students must be registered for the appropriate study abroad placeholder credits at the University of Minnesota. This registration must be completed before departure or before the first day of the on-campus UMN term (whichever is earlier) in order to maintain active UMN student status, allow financial aid to be released (if applicable) and to avoid late registration fees. If a student's credit amount changes at any time after their initial placeholder registration, the student must immediately adjust the placeholder credit amount themselves via MyU or contact the Learning Abroad Center to adjust the amount on their behalf.

Procedures

UMN-TC Students: Students receive registration instructions via email from the Learning Abroad Center prior to each study abroad term. These instructions are available near the beginning of the UMN registration queue.

UMN Students from other UMN Campuses: Students from the other UofM campuses (UMN-Duluth, UMN-Crookston, UMN-Morris, UMN-Rochester) receive registration instructions via email from the Learning Abroad Center prior to each study abroad term. These instructions are available near the beginning of the UMN registration queue.  Students are responsible for ensuring that their home UMN campus creates their Multi-Institutional status prior to registering, by working with their home campus's study abroad office or Registrar's Office.

Non-UMN Students: Non-University of Minnesota students are registered by Learning Abroad Center staff and should consult their home institution regarding any required registration at their home institution.

On-Site Registration

Upon arrival abroad (or sooner for some programs), students finalize enrollment into their actual courses according to the policies and timelines of the program.
