Semester study abroad keeps you on track for graduation. You must be enrolled full-time for 12-18 credit hours, the same as you would take at UNC.
On a Undergraduate Business study abroad program, you can receive
- Core credit towards your BSBA major
- Business elective credit towards your BSBA major or minor
- Credit for UNC General Education requirements
- Credit towards a second major or minor
A course will be approved if it is equivalent to the core course taught at Kenan-Flagler. The full course syllabus is needed for evaluation purposes.
Business elective credit
Students need 18 credit hours of business electives to graduate, and this is the most common type of credit students receive abroad. Business electives taken abroad can be used for an Area of Emphasis.
General Education requirements
Students can fulfill Approaches, Connections, and Supplemental General Education requirements abroad with the appropriate approval.
Second major or minor credit
With the approval of the department, you can receive credit for non-business courses to count towards your second major or minor.
Courses taken abroad on a Undergraduate Business semester study abroad program are transferred on a PS/F basis. You will receive credit for a course as long as your final grade is the equivalent of a C or above. Grading scales vary by country, and your study abroad advisor can tell you the minimum local grade needed for a Pass.
Please contact for course approvals and questions related to credit transfers.
