Policy on Use of International Academic Experiences in Undergraduate Degree Evaluations
The Coggin College of Business supports and encourages undergraduate students to study abroad. In all cases, students must obtain approval regarding anticipated academic credit earned prior to departure.   

The Coggin College of Business ( offers three types of programs:  

* Faculty-led study abroad courses  

Note: Coggin undergraduate students can only apply TWO upper-level, faculty-led study abroad courses towards their program of study. This excludes the 4-week summer and semester programs. Also, Coggin undergraduate students can only use ONE faculty-led study abroad towards their “major” requirements.  

* 4 week summer programs (via exchange partners)   

* Semester and academic year abroad (via exchange partners)  

On a limited case by case basis, students may be approved (through the formal College petition process) to participate in non-Coggin College of Business study abroad programs, when demonstrating a unique need unable to be met through a Coggin College of Business study abroad program.
