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.
Advising Study Abroad Students
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. All students must send their transript directly to UND. Trasncripts that need international credit evaluations will be evaluated by the Registrar's Office. The Registrar's Office coordinates the transfer of study abroad courses to UND trasncripts once the international transcript is received.
Students may send their physical transcripts to:
University of North Dakota
2891 2nd Ave N Stop 7143
Grand Forks, ND 58202
Electronic transcripts can be emailed directly to joan.enlow@UND.edu.
Study Abroad classroom presentations are opportunities to promote study abroad 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 fill out our Presentation Request Form on our Contact page.
Study Abroad classroom presentations typically range from 10-20 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. Alternatively, if you teach an online course, a digital version of the presentation can be provided for your Blackboard page.
