Illinois Abroad and Global Exchange (IAGE) does not approve courses. It is the responsibility of the student to read all directions carefully, as course approval instructions vary by college.
Choosing Your Study Abroad Courses
By choosing a program that aligns with your academic goals, fits your major requirements, and complements your plan of study at Illinois, you will enrich your study abroad experience. Start by investigating the classes you could take abroad and discussing them with your academic advisor. The classes you can take during your education abroad experience can be found under the “Courses” section of the online program page within My Study Abroad. This section will explain what courses the program offers and will provide a link to the host institution’s course catalogue. The host institution website may include course syllabi, which may help you better understand the course content in advance of registering for the course. Keep in mind that you can get many courses approved before departure, even if you don’t take all of these classes while abroad. As a result, you will have less work to do to get approval for classes you have added while abroad. Important note: IAGE does not approve courses.
