Study Abroad: Students may receive resident credit for University-sponsored studies abroad programs for which course registration and fee payment are effected through the University.
Other University-approved academic programs: Students participating in a University-approved academic program, including the National Student Exchange (NSE), UGA international exchange programs, and approved study abroad programs, are exempt from the part of the residence requirement which requires that 45 (or 40) of the last 60 semester credit hours must be completed in residence. In such cases, students need to complete 45 (or 40) semester hours at the University of Georgia in order to satisfy the residence requirement.
Credit earned through programs sponsored by other institutions, organizations, or approved student exchange programs will be recorded as transfer credit.
