Before participating in a study abroad, all students must:
Regardless of full or part-time status, all students must take 12-15 Stern credits while abroad. Although part-time students are taking a full credit load abroad, they are not transferring to the full-time program, and as such, their career services needs will be met by the Career Center for Working Professionals (CCWP).
Courses taken abroad count toward elective credit. Students must enroll in graduate-level, business related courses, and may not register for classes in which the material is similar to what has already been taken at Stern. Non-business or language courses are never approved for transfer credit.
Students must earn a grade of "B-" or higher in order to receive transfer credit at Stern. If a student does not achieve this grade, they will not receive credit and must make up these credits through additional coursework at Stern. Please note that in these situations, refunds are not permissible.
Final credit will be awarded once the official transcript is received from the partner school. This may take up to eight weeks after the exchange semester's completion.
Students work closely with the exchange coordinator at the partner school to choose elective courses.
All tuition payments are due to the Stern Bursar by the regularly scheduled payment deadlines.
Students studying abroad are expected to adhere to all Stern deadlines while abroad, including applying for financial aid. If you would like to have your student budget increased to reflect your airfare and any additional personal expenses you accrue, you will need to submit a Budget Appeal Form.
For additional information on financial aid, please contact the MBA Office of Financial Aid.
Students are expected to adhere to all Stern deadlines while abroad, including applying for graduation. Graduation application deadlines are as follows:
· June 1 for September graduation
· October 1 for January graduation
· February 1 for May graduation
Please note that Spring exchange students are considered September graduates if their grades are not received by the May deadline for grade acceptance (please contact the Office of Records & Registration for details).
