Students who seek to complete a course off campus must complete the Study Off Campus Request Form. The student is responsible for obtaining and completing the Study Off Campus Request Form, including the appropriate approvals, before registering for a course at another institution. This form should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar, Eisner Administration Building (EAB) Room 340 or email@example.com, before the Off-Campus course begins.
Students should submit approvals for off-campus work at least one week prior to the off-campus course starting to ensure approvals are received in time, although two weeks is preferable. Approvals generally take 3-5 business days; however, requests for major coursework and certain direct equivalents may require additional time for review by the respective academic department.
Study Off Campus Forms submitted in April and May can take longer to review due to volume and other departmental responsibilities. The Office of the Registrar will review all off-campus work for transfer eligibility and assign equivalencies and credit designations. If a departmental review is necessary, the Office of the Registrar will facilitate the evaluation with the appropriate academic department.
