Registering for and Completing INS3950
INS3950 is a 0-credit course used to mark completion of the International Educational Experience requirement on a student's transcript. A student must register for this during the semester in which he/she will be undertaking an activity (study abroad or internship) in fulfillment of the International Educational Experience requirement, in addition to any related study abroad or internship courses.
To do so, the student must first request permission by completing and submitting the document titled "Request for Approval to Register in INS3950 International Educational Experience" found on the Forms page of the Canvas site for International Studies. That form is designed to help prevent problems that have arisen in the past. Dr. Clayton McCarl, director of International Studies, can generally simplify the form for students who contact him before attempting to fill it out.
Once the student's request is approved, they will receive an email indicating that they have approval in the system to register for INS3950.
Students will be required to submit a short written piece about their experience, and possibly other documentation, in order to have INS3950 marked as completed at the end of the term in question. Details will be provided in the course site in Canvas for INS3950 for the corresponding semester.
