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! There is a database of previously approved study abroad courses. Please refer to the Course Information page for further information. For courses not found in the Course Approval Database, you must get approval from the appropriate Study Abroad Course Advisor (299 Advisor/Chief Advisor).
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.
