Any Stevenson University student in good standing can apply to study abroad as long as you meet stated requirements for your particular program of interest. At a minimum, this includes a GPA of at least 2.5 and not being on academic or disciplinary probation at the time of studying abroad.
While abroad, you remain enrolled at Stevenson, either in the actual course code (for faculty-led programs) or in a placeholder course. In the case of the placeholder course, it will be replaced with the actual courses you earned credit for abroad upon receipt of your overseas transcript.
Credits and Grades
You must maintain full-time status while abroad, which is a minimum of the equivalent of 12 credits per semester. There are no minimum credit requirements for Winterim, Spring Break, or summer study.
You are required to complete and obtain the necessary course approvals prior to departing on your study abroad program. Courses successfully completed abroad will appear on the Stevenson transcript. For Stevenson faculty-led travel courses, you will be enrolled in the designated SU course and earn SU credit. For "SU in" and SU affiliate programs, you will earn transfer credit. Beginning in Fall 2017 all “SU in” and SU affiliate programs will have the corresponding courses and letter grades appear on the SU transcript and grades earned will count in the SU GPA.
