THE PROGRAM PARTNER - CIEE
Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) is an educational organization dedicated to providing challenging and enriching study abroad programs. Learn more about CIEE from their web site. On these affiliate programs, CIEE staff members provide program-specific advising and guidance and answer students' and families' questions about the program details.
ACADEMICS 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.
A list of known credit/course equivalencies is available at the "Courses Offered" link in the fact sheet at the top of this page. 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 "ABRD4180" placeholder course that is holding the space for the host courses completed abroad. You will only be able to schedule for the placeholder course if you shared your final academic plan with SAS and official summary notes have been written in your JWU degree audit.
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.
THE PROCESS To participate in this program and receive credit toward your JWU degree, you must complete the following steps:
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.
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.)
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.
Make all program payments, such as tuition, directly to JWU.
Follow the instructions of both JWU and the affiliate partner for participation in this program.
Request your official study abroad program transcript be sent to JWU Study Abroad.
