Academic Considerations

Before you apply, make sure to review the following guidance specifically to College of AHS students.

Internships abroad are available but limited in study abroad and will not likely fulfill any internships requirements. Please consult with your academic advisor and Andiara Schwingel if you have questions about what kind of academic credit you can get for an internship abroad.

The College of AHS does not typically encourage studying abroad during your senior year, particularly in the Spring. However, it is possible, but there are several considerations to keep in mind as you make that decision. The considerations include transcript processing for graduation, consideration of interviews for graduate school as well as completion of remaining pre-requisite coursework. If you choose to study abroad spring semester senior year, your graduation will be delayed in order to receive the transcript from your study abroad program.

It is encouraged that you discuss study abroad with your academic advisor as soon as you begin considering it. They can discuss when will be the best time in your schedule for you to study abroad. After, you can attend a First Steps workshop to learn the basics of study abroad. Once you have a general idea of the study abroad process, contact IAGE to set up an individualized advising appointment.

Schedule an appointment

AHS students should review the course approval process and complete and submit the course approval summary form prior to departure for their study abroad program.
