Academics

The Office of Study Abroad at UA-Little Rock seeks to find programs that allow students to experience a international experience that highlights and compliments their UA-Little Rock academic degree. Study Abroad, at it’s core, is an academic-focused experience.

Setting up an Advising Appointment

As you’re deciding on the program that best fits your academic, personal, and career goals, you can set up a study abroad advising appointment by emailing studyabroad@ualr.edu.  At this appointment, the Director of Study Abroad can talk with you about program selection, budgeting for study abroad, and what to expect during your study abroad experience.

Study Abroad Coursework

Prior to departure, all study abroad students are required to have their study abroad coursework pre-approved using the Course Pre-Approval Form and/or the Foreign Language Course Pre-Approval Form.  Study Abroad will work with you to meet with the appropriate advisers and academic departments to do so in a timely manner.

Registering for Classes

Upon submission of a completed Study Abroad Course Pre-Approval Form, Study Abroad will directly enroll you in the appropriate number of Consortium hours. The Study Abroad Consortium Placeholder Courses (CONS) allow you to maintain your enrollment at UA-Little Rock while abroad.

Study Abroad Transcripts and Grades

All study abroad students are responsible for ensuring that UA-Little Rock Study Abroad receives an official transcript from their host institution.  Note that your host institution may take longer than expected to produce your official transcript.  Upon receipt of the official transcript, Study Abroad will work with you to get your Study Abroad Course Approval Form and transcript to the appropriate academic department for final grading.  The final grades will be submitted to UA-Little Rock Records and Registration for processing as UA-Little Rock credit, and will count toward the student’s GPA.
