Faculty Senate Minutes

15 November 1994

TO: Members of the Faculty Senate
FROM: Behnam Nakhai
Chairperson, Academic Policies Committee
DATE: November 15, 1994
SUBJECT: Policy Regarding Study Abroad Credits

The academic policies committee submits the following study abroad policy to the faculty senate.


Because international study is generally recognized as a valuable liberal arts educational experience and because study abroad makes a significant contribution to some academic majors (anthropology, foreign languages, international studies, etc.), the Academic Policies Committee recommends that the following policy be adopted to govern study abroad credits, so that students may continue to obtain financial aid to pursue such important special study.

Policy (This policy would be inserted on page 95 or 96 of the Governance Manual).

Study Abroad

1. Study abroad allows a student to pursue study of major course and general education requirements in an international setting.

2. Courses completed through study abroad are treated as resident credits.

3. Written approval of the Director of International Affairs, the student's adviser, the department chairperson of the student's major, and the Registrar is required prior to study abroad.

4. Study must take place on the campus of a degree-granting institution or through an accredited U.S. institution's study abroad program.

5. The student's sumulative Q.P.A. must be 2.00 or higher.

6. Courses taken at Millersville may not be repeated during study abroad. This policy applies whether the course has been passed or failed.
