When considering studying abroad for a semester, students should inform their academic advisor. The advisor will work with the student to determine what classes are still needed to graduate.
After figuring out what classes are needed, students should look at the courses offered at the university abroad. The courses are selected during the application process and before the students arrive overseas. Some classes taken abroad can come back as a Purdue class.
For example if a student needs to take Animal Science 102, the Introduction to Animal Agriculture course at Purdue they can take a similar course overseas. The course taken overseas will be listed on the transcript as Animal Science 400, Introduction to Animal Science.
