Earning course credit while abroad
UK Credit is also available for courses taken at recognized universities of Spain and Latin America. To receive credit, please consult with the Director of Undergraduate Studies before taking courses abroad. Before departing for your study abroad experience you need to meet with the DUS of the Hispanic Studies department. At that meeting you should bring the Academic Approval Form, a list course(s) you intend to take, including a course number, the number of credit hours and a brief description of the course.
