Responsibilities

As a Study Abroad or Study USA student, it is your responsibility to:

  • Review your graduation requirements with your academic advisor(s).
  • 与GEC顾问讨论留学或美国留学课程如何符合你的毕业要求.
  • 选择合适的国外课程和学期来保持学位的进展.
  • 如果你的第一选择被银河游戏app拒绝批准或无法在主课程中选择,请选择备用/备份课程.
  • Meet any Elon and host program course prerequisites that may apply.

What to Expect

Ways that study away is the same as study at Elon

  • Grades count and affect GPA.
  • Failure to attend class, without formally/officially withdrawing from a course, will result in a Failing grade.
  • Missing an exam, without formally/officially withdrawing from a course, will result in a Failing grade.
  • If you ever decide to apply to graduate school, 任何研究生项目都可能要求你提供海外学习成绩单,并将这些成绩与你在银河游戏官方下载网的其他成绩一起评估.

Ways that study away can vary substantially from Elon

  • Your grade can be determined by your results on one exam or one paper.
  • 你的成绩可以由整个学期中很少的几个评估点来决定, as compared to the typical American course.
  • Not every course provides a detailed syllabus (e.g. instead you may get a reading list).
  • Professors may not keep office hours, as compared to the typical U.S.-based professor.
  • 国外的大学和项目可能不像银河游戏app大学的学生在校时那样有相同的分数申请过程.  There may be no grade appeal process offered at all.
  • There may be no attendance policy.  There may be a strictly enforced attendance policy.
  • 学期末的考试周期可能会超过两到三个阶段(与我的美国大学所遵循的“考试周”模式相比).S. institutions).
  • Students may experience less in-class discussion in some academic systems.
  • 世界各地的许多教育系统都希望学生在课外花更多的时间学习,与课堂上的“接触时间”成比例,” than is generally expected in the U.S.
  • 课堂礼仪可能比银河游戏app大学的学生以前经历过的更正式,也可能不那么正式.
  • Notions of what is considered academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.) may vary dramatically from what is practiced at Elon.

General Considerations

  • Grade conversions can vary by institution.  There is no one universally adopted grade conversion scale.
  •           -例子一:一个海外留学项目的成绩可能会被美国翻译成不同的版本.S. institutions.  法国院校的“”分可能被银河游戏app大学视为“B”分,而另一所美国大学可能被视为“B+”分.S. institution.
  •           -Example Two: There are three universities in Dublin.  All of which have A-F grade scale.  However,  银河游戏app大学根据每所爱尔兰大学的具体情况,为其制定了一个单独的分数转换量表.
  • 课程负担(某一特定学习期限内的课程数量和每门课程的“权重”)因国家而异, institutions, and programs.
  • Students may take 3, 4, 5 or 6 discrete courses in one semester.  在国外教授的每门课程都自动等同于银河游戏官方下载网标准的4个学期课程.  Elon has 1 and 2 semester hour courses, and so it is not uncommon to find such courses taught abroad as well.
  • 学生不应期望在重新安排课程评估时得到特别考虑, assignments, or exams, 因为想完成个人旅行或者因为家人在国外访问他们.  学生们不应该指望提前参加考试,因为他们在学期结束时提前订好了回家的机票,在预定的考试之前就起飞了.
  • 在学期开始之前,主持项目和银河游戏官方下载网的学生之间应该确定缺课或宗教节日的考虑.
  • Students experiencing disruptions to study or the taking of exams due to strikes, 如有游行示威或其他骚乱,应立即联络GEC谘询及支援.  Accommodations shall be determined in coordination with, and consistent with the policies of the host program/university.

Course Planning Instructions

在为特定类型的全球参与注册课程时,一定要遵循具体的说明.

For Elon Center, affiliate and exchange programs:

大部分学期和暑期项目的学分都是从其他机构转移到银河游戏官方下载网的. 为了确保按预期学分转移,学生必须完成一份课程复习表.

唯一不需要在课程复习表上复习的课程是由银河游戏app学院在银河游戏app中心项目中教授的课程.  All other courses on center, affiliate, and exchange programs should be reviewed through the process below.

新:从2020年11月起,课程复习表已转移到一个新的平台eDocs. To access eDocs, users must either be on campus or use Elon’s VPN. Guidance on setting up and using Elon’s VPN is below. 

Course Review Form instructions

1. Ensure that you have an updated graduation plan. Your academic advisor can help you update your plan.

2. Review your Host Program Course Offerings.  在主项目的网站上查看你的项目的课程设置(通常这些链接来自银河游戏官方下载网每个项目的宣传册页面). If the courses for your term away are not yet available, base your selections on the most recent information. Make sure you are looking at courses offered in the correct term; offerings abroad vary between fall and spring just as they do here on campus.

3. Use the Transfer Articulation Table to interpret the information you’re seeing on the program website. 转学衔接表是由这里的注册办公室维护的工具——当学生通过转学或留学机构获得银河游戏官方下载网的学分时, it is added to the Transfer Articulation Table. It does not include every program and every course. Courses listed are subject to change by the host program, 而且也不能保证在你离开的这段时间内,某门课程会被提供. Use the Transfer Articulation Table as an initial guide for course transfer (i.e. to help decide if a course is “in the ballpark”). Courses will transfer as listed by the Registrar on your course review form.

4. Complete the Course Review Form (linked below). Please read the instructions on the form closely. 最简单的方法来处理课程回顾表格是确定你想在你离开的时间里填写的要求,然后在你的主办机构寻找你认为符合要求的课程. List your preferred courses and plenty of backups on the form. 填妥表格后,注册主任办公室会在收到表格约两周后将表格寄回给你. 为了完成课程回顾表,你必须在校园里或连接到伊隆VPN. 请访问下面的资源,了解如何安全地连接到Elon VPN.

Programs that have a separate course review or registration process:

  • Elon in LA: Students select course preferences in their MyElonGlobal application, and GEC staff complete their registration on their behalf.

5. 在MyElonGlobal申请中电子签署课程复习表材料. Your application will not be complete until you sign this material.

6. Await approval or additional instruction from the Associate Registrar. 注册主任办公室的批准书或批注将在电子文档平台上公布. 您将通过电子邮件通知,并直接登录每次更改的形式.

For more information on global short-term program policies, please see the Policies page.


For Independent Programs

Students register for Elon coursework, often independent study, after the independent program application is approved.
