Students who are studying abroad must document their choice of courses and determine how they will count (humanities, social sciences, major requirements, etc.) with their Academic Advisor. They will use the Program of Study form in their Study Abroad packet for this documentation. Students abroad who are planning on returning to SU for the next semester should also receive advising (usually through electronic communication) so they can register for courses at the regular time.
