JWU Academic Planning For This Program

AVAILABLE DATES  *Specific dates within host web site

Summer I&II

Academic Programs International (API) is an educational organization dedicated to providing challenging and enriching study abroad programs. Learn more about API from their web site. On these affiliate programs, API staff members provide program-specific advising and guidance and answer students' and families' questions about the program details.

The specific course descriptions and options are described on the host website.  It is important to plan how the courses abroad will be applied towards your JWU degree.

Total Credit Hours Earned Abroad On This Program:
  • Summer I: 4 Semester credits (6.75 quarter credits): JWU may only be able to apply 4.5 quarter credits towards your degree.
  • Summer II: 4 Semester credits (6.75 quarter credits): JWU may only be able to apply 4.5 quarter credits towards your degree.
  • Summer I & II: 8 Semester credits (13.5 quarter credits): JWU may be able to apply 9.0 or 13.5 quarter credits towards your degree.
A list of known credit/course equivalencies is available on the Student Academic Services Transfer Evaluation System (TES) website. If you would like to take courses abroad that do not appear on the list of known credit/course equivalencies, we will help you request a new course equivalency.  You are required to complete a Study Abroad Exchange and Foreign Course Equivalency Form for your academic plan abroad in order to coordinate your plan with Study Abroad and SAS.  Contact your Study Abroad Advisor for assistance in completing and submitting the course equivalency form.

Since host courses are not from the JWU catalog, you will schedule at JWU for a generic placeholder course that is holding the space for the host courses completed abroad.

Upon completion of the program, the host will send an official transcript to JWU Study Abroad.  Previously approved courses which are successfully passed will be applied to the JWU transcript as transfer credit.  The typical timeline for your JWU transcript to be updated is 3-5 months.

At many universities in the UK, 1 course = 20 UK credits, which is equivalent to about 6.75 U.S. quarter credits. Because JWU courses are 4.5 quarter credits each, this is not a direct equivalency. This means that two courses at a university in the UK may satisfy 9.0 or 13.5 quarter credits at JWU. Therefore, when participating on a study abroad program in the UK, JWU students have two options:

  1. To satisfy 13.5 JWU credits, you must identify three JWU courses, including at least one JWU free elective, on your GPS. You can transfer back two UK courses at 20 UK credits each for three JWU courses because nearly any foreign course can satisfy a free elective. As a result, the additional credits that you are gaining from the two UK courses will satisfy one JWU free elective.
  2. To satisfy a minimum of 9.0 JWU credits, you must identify 2 JWU courses, which may or may not include a free elective. If you do not have free electives, you can transfer back two UK courses for two JWU courses. Without a third course (the free elective) to absorb the additional credit, the extra UK credits have nowhere to go, and you cannot earn the full 13.5 quarter credits. Rather, the two courses that you take on your program will come back as two equivalent courses at JWU.

To participate in this program and receive credit toward your JWU degree, you must complete the following steps:
  1. Submit a JWU Study Abroad application by clicking "apply now" at the top or bottom of this page.  Applications will not be reviewed until the application fee is submitted.
  2. Study Abroad reviews your JWU application and will "Accept" your application if all minimum eligibility requirements have been met*. (*Final acceptance into the program only comes from the program affiliate partner directly.)
  3. Complete the affiliate partner's application, available on its web site. JWU and the program host have separate application systems.  Please be advised that there may be duplicate information requested.
  4. Make all program payments, such as tuition, directly to JWU.
  5. Follow the instructions of both JWU and the affiliate partner for participation in this program.
  6. Request your official study abroad program transcript be sent to JWU Study Abroad.
Each program has a mandatory orientation process which starts the term before your program starts. Failure to participate in the various meetings listed below may jeopardize your ability to participate in the program.

Pre-departure meetings vary according to the program model and typically include discussions, on-line resources, and assignments to ensure you understand your specific program, the courses, housing, costs and other related details. These meetings may be a combination of in-person and web-based meeting formats.

An in-person Study Abroad Retreat is scheduled on each campus with advertised dates, times, and locations to discuss topics relevant to all study abroad programs. 

An in-country Orientation is included upon arrival to your program for on-site information and program reminders.
