Credits are certified by UW-Platteville and will be validated on an official UW-Platteville transcript at the end of the semester. Credits earned also become part of an official academic record at UW-Platteville.
While all credits should be transferable, please note that if you wish any of your courses to fulfill specific requirements for your major, minor, or general education, you must seek the necessary approval from the appropriate person(s) from your home campus.
Non UW-Platteville Students
When you are accepted into SAIIE you should inform your academic advisor and study abroad office at your home campus about your intent to go abroad on our program.
You will remain enrolled at your home institution as a "degree-seeking" student. We will enroll you at UW-Platteville for only the term you are going abroad as a "special student."
After being accepted on our program you will need to identify the courses you would like to take at SAIIE and find out what paperwork is necessary from your home campus to ensure transfer credit.
Most campuses have a document or form for you to complete. This form may be called something like "international study course approval form" or "study abroad transfer credit form." You must complete this form in full with all necessary and appropriate signatures (from academic advisors and department chairs) to ensure credit transfer.
At the end of the term you will receive one official UW-Platteville transcript for the term abroad on a UW-Platteville program. This transcript will be sent to your home school's Registrar's or Admission's Office for transfer credit.
