Courses and Grades


Courses

All academic credit earned abroad through any EC-sponsored or affiliated programs is eligible for credit at Elmhurst College.  Working closely with academic advisers, department chairs and the Director of International Education, students receive pre-approval for their proposed courses during their experience abroad.  Students can often receive approval for courses taken for major or AoK credit, and at the very least receive elective credit toward graduation requirements. All study away courses fulfill ECIC Experiential Learning Requirements.

Grades

Grades earned abroad through any EC-sponsored or affiliated programs receive EC credit.  The same rules pertaining to grading preferences on campus pertain to classes abroad.  Students can take one P/NP class each semester; however, this option is not available for credit earned in classes meeting major or AoK requirements. While abroad, different countries might have different credit hours than Elmhurst.
