Faculty and academic advisors play a very important role in not only preparing students to study abroad but also with encouraging students to go and even setting up new programs.
In order to provide some general guidance for approving courses to be taken abroad along with a history of approved courses, follow the Approving Courses for Study Abroad Process. We have also included a link to the student instructions for your information.
We have also provided a comprehensive “active” list of the college’s international exchanges. This information identifies the type of program and active terms that students can study abroad. If you are interested in setting up an exchange, please review the “Establishing a New Program” guidelines.
Students studying abroad are required to obtain course approvals from their departments and College prior to departure. Students in the College of ACES may study abroad (or participate in an international activity) from 1-2 weeks to an academic year. Following are general rules/procedures for students looking to obtain course approvals of courses they are taking abroad. Detailed instructions are also provided and given to the students when obtaining these approvals. Students are required to meet with their advisor prior to studying abroad.
There are a large number of courses (2500+) that have been taken by students who have studied abroad during a summer, semester, or academic year. These courses have been reviewed by faculty and staff across campus and are approved for various usage from open electives, degree and general education requirements.
For a listing of previously approved and taken study abroad courses, log in to the study abroad course database at My.ACES Portal . This section will provide you information on courses that have been approved for study abroad. Please read directions carefully.
Faculty/advisors will also have an opportunity to make comments or notes on specific courses on this site.
Note: Students are also provided with detailed instructions that correlate to the faculty/advisor instructions.
