When may I study abroad?
You may study abroad after you have earned a minimum of 34 semester hours (usually the second semester of your sophomore year) at Adrian College.
What is the cost of the study abroad program?
Costs vary from program to program. You will remain enrolled at Adrian College and will be eligible for non-institutional financial aid while studying abroad. There may be additional transportation costs that are not covered by financial aid.
How much language study do I need to participate?
You don’t have to be fluent to participate in a foreign study program. In fact, most programs allow beginners without any knowledge of language to participate in their programs.
Will the credits I earn transfer back to Adrian College?
The credits you earn will be applied to the bachelor's degree from Adrian College. Grades received in those courses will show on your permanent transcript and will count in your cumulative grade point average.
Is Adrian College affiliated with any national study abroad programs?
Yes! Adrian College is affiliated with many Study Abroad and Service Learning organizations. Click on “Resources & Affiliates” to see a complete list.
I'm planning on studying abroad or in an off-campus program next semester. Do I still need to register at Adrian College?
Yes. In order to receive academic credit for the work you complete off campus, you must complete the “Study Abroad Checklist,” available from the Study Abroad Director. During this process you will meet with the Adrian College Registrar to register you for 12 generic “study abroad” credits. This does not limit you to taking only 12 hours while abroad. It also does not guarantee that you will earn 12 hours of credit if less work is completed abroad. It merely shows your intent in being a full-time student.
After your program, the affiliate institution will send an official transcript to the Adrian College Registrar’s Office, and the registrar will enter the credit earned into the computer system.
How do I register for my next semester at Adrian College while I'm abroad?
During the course selection process, please use the Bell Tower system to select courses for the semester following your time abroad.
Once you’ve selected courses for the following semester, please contact your Academic Advisor or the Registrar’s Office and ask them to “push the button” or finalize your registration.
