The transfer and application of academic credit is ultimately decided by students’ home academic institution. To assist in this process, we provide detailed course descriptions, contact hours, syllabi and recommended credits for individual courses. CEA Site Specialists are available to help answer questions regarding credit transfer. CEA has worked with more than 1,000 colleges and universities across North America to successfully translate and transfer credit for coursework completed in CEA programs.
To make this process a smooth one as you seek out your study abroad experience, review course descriptions with your academic advisor prior to departure. Before your program start date, request written pre-approval for high grades earned abroad. After your program is completed, submit your official transcripts released by either the Global University Partner or University of New Haven – CEA’s School of Record – about 90 days after program completion, to your home institution.
CEA bases the number of recommended credits for each course on a conversion of 15 classroom/contact hours per semester credit. So a semester program with 180-225 contact hours should be considered worth 12-15 credits.
