Before You Go

Whether you have selected your study abroad program or are deciding between multiple programs, it's important to review the courses that have been evaluated and approved for credit at Iowa. If your study abroad program offers transfer credit, please follow the transfer credit instructions. If the program offers resident credit, you will find instructions at the bottom of this page.

If your study abroad program offers a business course that has not been reviewed and approved, you can fill out a course evaluation form at the bottom of this page. Once submitted, the evaluation is routed to the corresponding department for review. You'll be notified when the review is complete.
