ACES faculty who are interested in developing and leading a new course abroad are strongly encouraged to meet with ACES Study Abroad staff as well as their unit's executive officers to discuss their proposed course before submitting a proposal. This process should begin at least 12 months in advance of the proposed program dates.
Faculty should keep the following in mind when designing a new course or adding an international travel component to an existing course:
Please note that student exchange agreements are legally binding documents, and require us to commit finances in terms of tuition and partial fee waivers. They differ from the Research MOU which does not commit financial resources.
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.
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.
