Returning to WashU
Overseas Programs hopes you had a great experience on your study abroad program! We are always happy to talk with returning students about their experiences and can be a resource for students interested in promoting study abroad. Once students return to campus they should ensure that they complete all steps needed to transfer credit taken abroad. Returning after time abroad can be both rewarding and challenging. Returnees have several resources for adjusting to life back in the United States and on campus.
Here are the steps you need to take as a returnee to transfer credit taken abroad and ways you can stay internationally involved and ease your transition back to campus.
Students must complete a few steps before the credit transfer process can be initiated. The student's file goes to each department from which the student is requesting credit and is then sent to the registrar. Students should stay in communication with Overseas Programs and their departmental study abroad advisor to make sure they have completed all student obligations.
