Education Abroad


Due to the high volume of requests at the start of the semester, study abroad credit evaluation requests submitted between August 19 – 30 will not be evaluated until after August 30. Students should expect results within 10-14 business days after August 30. Evaluations will be reviewed in the order in which they were received.


Studying Abroad?


Please view the general information about credit evaluation for study abroad trips.

If you are studying abroad, it’s important to have your courses evaluated before you leave. The School of Communication can evaluate Communication and Journalism courses only. Please contact the transfer credit coordinators for courses outside of Communication that you plan on taking.

Students must submit the following materials:

  1. Complete the School of Communication Transfer Credit Evaluation Form [pdf]
  2. Print out and attach a detailed syllabus for each course being reviewed
    1. Include the name of the textbook, the author, a list of sections in the book covered, and a topic list breakdown if possible.
    2. We cannot evaluate a course based on a course description only

All materials may be emailed, mailed, faxed, or dropped off to the School of Communication Advising Office. No syllabus will be reviewed in person. The evaluation will be made in 7-10 business days. You will be emailed the decision to your OSU email account.
