Transfer Credit Guidlines

Florence, Italy © 2000 by Deborah Parker

Transfer credit for courses taken abroad is not automatic. Students seeking credit for courses on Italian literature or culture taken abroad should make an appointment to see Professor Adrienne Ward before leaving for Italy. Students are advised to see Prof. Ward the semester preceding the one in which they will be abroad. These appointments should be made during the course of the semester, not during holidays or over the summer. Students should bring a copy of the course descriptions and their chosen abroad program to the meeting. Forms for transfer credit can be obtained from Garrett Hall.

Students in the College, once enrolled, may not transfer credit for any courses leading to or fulfilling the foreign language requirement. The only exception to this rule is for students who have received prior approval to study the language in a country where it is the native language. A 2.5 GPA is required to transfer credit from a study abroad program. For more information on undergraduate requirements, consult information found on the college's arts and sciences link for undergraduates.
