Before going on a study abroad program for major or minor credit, undergraduate students are required to meet with an RLL Academic Advisor in the appropriate language. Please make an appointment and bring a proposed study abroad course syllabi to the appointment for pre-approval.
When students return, they must make an additional appointment with an RLL Academic Advisor. This will ensure the courses can be appropriately articulated to count towards the major or minor.
