Transcripts and Credit

Study Abroad Credit

  • If you are trying to graduate with College Honors (e.g. cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude) from the College of Arts & Sciences, then your study abroad grades will be factored into your expanded GPA. Note: graduation with College Honors in A&S requires a minimum cumulative and expanded GPA of 3.5.
  • If you are not trying to graduate with College Honors (e.g. cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude) from the College of Arts & Sciences, then your study abroad grades will only count toward your degree hours, but they will not be factored into your expanded GPA.
  • If you take classes other than the ones you had pre-approved at UofL, you will need to contact the Office of Study Abroad & International Travel immediately to let us know of this change. We cannot guarantee that these new classes will transfer, but we will make every effort to assist you in this process. We further advise you to bring back your syllabi and any pertinent work for these classes, as they may be needed for accurate transfer credit evaluation.
  • For questions, contact the Office of Study Abroad & International Travel.

    Mailing Transcripts From Your Host University

    After returning from your study abroad, please have your transcripts sent to:

    International Center
    Brodschi Hall
    University of Louisville
    2301 S. Third Street
    Louisville, KY
    40208 USA

    Failure to do so will result in a delay in your transcript being processed and your credits transferring.

    Re-entry Evaluation

    The Study Abroad Reentry Evaluation needs to be completed before your transcript can be processed. Once our office receives your transcript, we will email you a link to the survey.

    Once your survey is completed, your transcript is sent to the Office of Transfer Articulation, and processing occurs within 5-10 working days.
