Direct Enroll and Exchange Programs
- Research course offerings. Use the host institution’s course listings, which can be found on each program’s page on the Office for Education Abroad website. Previously approved courses can be reviewed on the MSU Office of the Registrar website and the Transfer MSU website.
- Create a list of courses. Write down the correct course code and title for each foreign course in column 1 of the Course Approval Form (CAF). Include the number of credits at the host institution in column 2. Make sure course codes, titles, and credits are exact (in the original language, no abbreviations). We recommend getting 6-8 courses (summer programs) or 10 courses (fall and spring semester programs) pre-approved just in case courses abroad conflict or are not offered. If this form is not sufficient to list all courses, use a second form.
- For Students participating in Broad sponsored programs, submit a list of courses you are interested in taking to Dwight Handspike. Use the course list from the semester you plan to enroll – do not use prior semester lists, as not all courses are taught each semester.
