All programs outside of WVU's pre-approved propgramming must be approved by the Director of Education Abroad. Programs will be reviewed based on their academic integrity, professional reputation, systems of safety and student support, and rationale for program choice.

Programs must be requested and approved three months prior to departure. Students participating in approved programs must register in the Education Abroad Placeholder course in order to transfer credits received abroad. Credit transfer, as always, is dependent on academic department approval.

In order to request approval, please provide:
  • Program Information - name, location, travel dates, website, contact information, cost.
  • Rationale - please provide a written justification why this program fulfills your academic needs and goals.
  • Additional information may be requested.

Please submit requests to Vanessa Yerkovich at vanessa.crandall@mail.wvu.edu.
