Non UGA Programs
UGA offers many unique programs that suit most majors for academic credit, but for students with more specific study abroad needs, UGA also provides external opportunities for students to study, intern, research, or participate in service-learning abroad. Students going on Non-UGA education abroad experiences not included on the StudyAway Portal program list will use this application to ensure Office of Global Engagement approval.
Students going on Non-UGA study abroad programs for academic credit must fill out a Transfer Credit Approval Form (TCAF) and register in a placeholder STEX 1001/1002 course in Athena prior to departure. These two steps are critical for receiving academic credit towards your UGA degree, in addition to receiving financial aid for the term. Students will consult the available courses offered by their program and have the proposed courses pre-approved in consultation with an Global Education Advisor, department heads, and their academic advisor to ensure courses transfer back to UGA. There is a $250 TCAF fee charged to the student's account for study abroad transfer credit.
