Relax. Studying abroad, even for a year, should not lengthen the time you spend at NWU to get your degree. And it won’t lower your GPA.
Credit for Majors, Minors and General Education
The credits you earn overseas on an NWU–approved study abroad program will transfer to your program here.
Transferred credits can be used to satisfy requirements in your major(s), minor(s), and the general education curriculum.
You must earn the equivalent of a C– or better (Nebraska Wesleyan does not transfer Ds).
Credit Transfer Pre-approval
Before you leave to study abroad, you are required to get your credits pre–approved for transfer. Work closely with your NWU academic advisor, the chair of the department in your major(s) and minor(s), the Registrar’s Office, and the Director of Global Engagement to ensure that your credits will transfer the way you expect.
Nebraska Wesleyan University provides equal educational opportunities to all qualified persons in all areas of university operation, including education and decisions regarding faculty appointment, promotion or tenure, without regard to race, religion, age, sex, creed, color, disability, marital status, national or ethnic origin or sexual orientation.
