Credit Information for Kenan-Flagler Business Students

Current business majors and minors may participate on a Kenan-Flagler Global Program offered by the Undergraduate Business Program, or an Arts & Sciences program offered through the Study Abroad Office. For non-graded credit programs through either Kenan-Flagler or main campus, business majors and minors seeking business credit towards their degree must submit full course syllabi for pre-approval by the deadline listed below:
  • Spring Semester: Feb. 1
  • Summer I or II: June 15
  • Fall Semester: Sep. 15

Students submit syllabi for review via the Kenan-Flagler course evaluation system, which is accessed through the Intranet, under My Courses (Quick Links menu on the left)/Undergraduate Exchange Course Credit Create Request. Kenan-Flagler will not review or award credit for any course submitted after the deadline, unless a student has advance written approval of the Kenan-Flagler Associate or Assistant Director for Global Programs in case of a late program start date or other extenuating circumstances. The pre-approval requirement is designed to help students know how their business courses will transfer from the start of the study abroad program and to assist with academic planning.

The database also includes a history of how courses at different institutions have transferred for previous semesters (business core or elective credit, general credit, 2nd major, etc.) - students are encouraged to peruse this database in advance of selecting their courses. Please note that a previous approval for a course does not guarantee that the course will always count for the requirement listed, as course objectives and requirements are subject to change each semester.

Study Abroad Credit Prior to Admission to Kenan-Flagler

Students who study abroad prior to their admission to the Undergraduate Business Program (UBP) on programs provided by the main campus study abroad office or other global program offerings outside of the Kenan-Flagler Business School may submit a request for a maximum of 1 business (BUSI) course, to be considered for either core or elective BUSI credit. BUSI credit for pre-business students is not pre-approved - it is the student's responsibility to submit their abroad course selections for review through the Kenan-Flagler intranet once the student is accepted and enrolls in the Undergraduate Business Program. The only exception to this policy pertains to students in the Assured Admission Program (AAP). More information regarding the Main Campus Transfer Credit Policy for BUSI Credit can be found here.

Students participating on Kenan-Flagler Global Programs should consult a Kenan-Flagler global programs advisor by scheduling a study abroad advising appointment here, or by emailing us at ubpglobal@kenan-flagler.unc.edu for specific information concerning credit. General academic information for undergraduate business majors and minors can be found here.
