Transcripts from Study Abroad Programs: A Workbook.
Krawutschke, Eleanor, Ed.; Roberts, Thomas, Ed.
This workbook is the result of a 3-year study of transcripts and other documentation from study-abroad programs and is designed to be of use to both those responsible for making credit transfer determinations and those advising students on study abroad programs. It provides the following information: (1) guidelines for the documentation necessary in an ideal transcript; (2) an analysis of current transcript practices by college- and agency-sponsored programs; and (3) recommendations for the establishment of on-campus procedures at both a small private institution and a large public institution. Chapter 1 is concerned with working definitions and types of study abroad programs. The second chapter deals specifically with transcripts from a study-abroad program, as well as a brief discussion on how work abroad is transferred into U.S. credits and in what amount. Chapter 3 discusses and analyzes college-sponsored and agency-sponsored program documentation. Chapter 4 examines the procedures which might be instituted on campus to ensure efficient and appropriate granting of credit for study-abroad experiences. And chapter 5 provides commentary and recommendations. Thirty-three examples of actual documentation are included. (GLR)
