Make sure to keep in contact with your academic advisor. Keep updated on what is happening on campus and make sure you are academically on track when you return to campus. Keep an eye out for course selection! 

Keep all of your coursework, syllabi, and papers. Depending on the department, you may need to show the records from your classes in order to obtain credit for the course. Be able to show the chair of your department the work that you completed during your time abroad.
