Transferring Study Abroad Credit Earned on CIS Abroad Programs
A student’s home university will dictate whether they can receive credit for courses taken overseas on a CIS Abroad program. Students should begin by asking their study abroad office if CIS Abroad is an approved program and about the process for transferring credits back to campus. We recommend that students seek approval for each class by submitting course syllabi or course descriptions to an academic advisor in their department during the enrollment process.
After students have completed their coursework at the foreign university and have made all of the appropriate payments, the home institution will be issued a transcript from the host school via CIS Abroad. In addition to the official transcript, CIS Abroad also provides a transcript translation sheet to facilitate faster acceptance of overseas credits.
This process generally takes longer than in the U.S., usually about 8 – 10 weeks. Please keep in mind that academic records will not be released if a student has any outstanding financial obligations to the host university or to CIS Abroad. If you have any questions about a student transcript, please contact us!
Students applying to graduate school or who need an additional transcript should email email@example.com.
