Study Abroad Advising
The International Center assists students with advising, courses, transferring courses and travel recommendations. As students start their study abroad journey they are encouraged to follow six steps to studying abroad.
Students may need help determining when the best term is to study abroad and which courses will transfer to UND. Please review the students academic plan with them to help them determine when is the best time to study abroad and for how long. A student may choose to study abroad for an academic year, a semester, over the summer, or on a short-term faculty led program.
The Study Abroad Office is available to help students obtain syllabi for potential courses from our partner institutions and provider programs.
- Help the student to review course descriptions available at host institution and identify potential courses.
- Assist the student in requesting course review and determine course equivalency from the appropriate department.
- Complete and submit the Petition for Academic Credit form.
UND Study Abroad applications require a recommendation from a Faculty member or Academic Advisor. Please include an honest assessment of the student's maturity, academic ability and any reservations you may have about the applicant studying abroad.
Recommendations need not be formal letter. The recommendation will come as a request sent as an email sent through the Study Abroad application.
After studying abroad, it is the student's responsibility to submit their transcripts to the Study Abroad Office. Students may need an international credit evaluation before submitting the transcript to UND. The Registrar's Office will review transfer courses once a transcript is submitted.
Students may send their transcripts to:
University of North Dakota
2901 University Ave, Stop 7109
Grand Forks, ND 58202-7109
The purpose of a Study Abroad Classroom Presentation is to promote study abroad opportunities and to educate students on their options to study abroad during their time at UND. If you are interested in hosting a study abroad classroom presentation please email UND.studyabroad@UND.edu with your preferred time as well as the course title and building/room location.
Study Abroad classroom presentations can last from 5 minutes up to 40 minutes and can be tailored to fit your classroom and students. Topics covered in the presentation include: An overview of study abroad, locations, costs, scholarships, and coursework. These presentations may be given by study abroad alumni and feature personal stories and experiences from studying abroad. Alternatively, if you teach an online course, a digital version of the presentation can be shared through Yuja.
