International Study Course Search

The Office of International & Leadership Programs maintains a database of past course approvals.  Please note the following:
  • This database is intended to provide you with historical information about course evaluations facilitated by the Office of International & Leadership Programs.  Additional courses, particularly General Education evaluations, can be found on the Registrar's Transfer Credit Services website.
  • Depending on the course and your major, courses you plan to take while abroad may need to be re-evaluated.
  • Scroll to the bottom of this page to review the naming convention used in the database in order to search for approved technical electives for your major. 
  • Complete the Engineering Course Evaluation Request Form to have an abroad course that is not already approved by your major evaluated for transfer credit.
