STUDY ABROAD CREDITS, UVM DEGREE APPLICABILITY, AND GRADING
Transferring Credits from Study Abroad
Credits may transfer, but they may or may not fulfill degree requirements. Contact your academic advisor to find out how transfer credit will apply toward UVM degree requirements. Save all coursework completed abroad, especially the course syllabi. These may need to be reviewed to allocate credit towards specific degree requirements.
Before you decide on a study abroad program, find out the minimum number of credits per course that your UVM school/college requires to satisfy a degree requirement. Before you register for your courses abroad, find out how many credits each planned course abroad is worth so you can ensure they meet your UVM School/College requirements. If you have questions about whether the courses you plan to take may satisfy a specific requirement, please consult an academic advisor or the student services office of your home college/school.
You must complete 30 of your last 45 credits at UVM.
