Non-Dickinson Student Credit Transfer

The Registrar’s Office will automatically send an official transcript of work completed with grades and course titles to the home institution once grades have been posted.  Transcripts are usually sent to your institution later in the semester following your return.  Know your home institution’s policy on transferring credits beforehand, as you may have to get pre-approval.  Your institution’s policy will govern whether the credit will be counted toward the GPA.  You should focus on your interests and credit needs.  If you plan to take courses in a department other than your major, check the requirements with the respective department at your home institution before departure.  However, please note that you may not know what the course descriptions are before the school year begins, so you may have to take care of this once you are abroad.
