Course Approval Process

Every student studying abroad must complete a Course Approval Summary Form (CASF) prior to departing campus for their study abroad program. There are very specific instructions for completing the CASF, and those instructions vary from college to college—make sure you are following the correct instructions for the college you are in!

Every course taken abroad must be approved! The IPENG office and the campus Study Abroad Office each have a database of study abroad courses that have previously been approved. Please refer to the Course page for instructions on how to access each of these databases.

If a course on your foreign transcript has not been approved following the instructions for your college, this will delay the processing of your study abroad credit.

Below are links to detailed instructions for completing the CASF.
