Ideally, study abroad programs allow students to take courses abroad that fulfill graduation requirements at home. Because CISabroad works only with recognized universities abroad, there is usually no difficulty arranging the transfer of credit back to the home school. Nonetheless, advanced planning is crucial to ensure that both the home university and the host university have approved students’ course selections before going overseas.
CISabroad requires, as part of the application process, that students receive written approval from their home school study abroad advisor, academic advisor, or academic dean for the courses they wish to take abroad.
After your student has completed their coursework at the foreign university and has made all of the appropriate payments, the home institution will be issued a transcript from the host school via CISabroad. In addition to the official transcript, we also provide 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 CISabroad.
