What is “study abroad” for the purposes of University Studies?

A course must meet the following criteria:

  • Be at least a 3-credit hour course.
  • Be one of the following:
  • professor-led and chair- and dean-approved;
  • a CCSA course;
  • a KIIS course;
  • a IBS course; or
  • an IIS-approved course, also with the approval of the department chair of the discipline of the course content, whether in an MSU or non-MSU program, including exchange programs and courses taken at universities abroad; and 
  • have at least 30 hours of substantive, structured academic contact hours abroad;
  • meet SACS minimum of 40 total actual contact hours;
  • require students to produce or complete a substantive project, paper, or other evaluative tool that demonstrates discipline-related knowledge learned in the course abroad; and
  • the pre-departure basic orientation typical of study abroad programs would not count toward the total number of contact hours for the course.
