UC International Student Grants

Overseas Study

At some time during their undergraduate career, students may wish to engage in a program of study conducted overseas. In order to maximize the number of hours that transfer to one's major, any program of overseas study should be developed in consultation with the department's director of undergraduate studies. Credit toward the major will depend in part on the proposed course content, language of instruction, and the student's fluency in that language. The department does not administer any overseas programs. Information about overseas programs is available through college offices in 102 McMicken.
