If, while abroad, a student decides to enroll in a course not previously approved for transfer to Lafayette, they can see the Changing Courses While Abroad page for detailed information on having courses approved while abroad.
For all Common Course of Study attributes, students will follow the appropriate steps outlined above in order to have the course approved to transfer back to Lafayette. In addition to the steps above, students will complete the electronic common course of study approval form. Students will complete the form and click submit. The form will be directed to the Registrar’s Office for approval. Once the approval request is reviewed, the Registrar will provide the student with a response to their request.
**Please note for Lafayette-led interim programs, each program/course is already pre-approved for certain Common Course of Study attributes and so students SHOULD NOT submit Common Course of Study approval requests for these programs. Students can find the designated Common Course of Study attributes near the top of each program’s brochure page (which one can find the links to on the Interim Programs page). Not all programs will have Common Course of Study attributes designated to them and it is important that each student does not assume they will gain Common Course of Study credit by participating in an interim program.
