Policies & Procedures for Study and Travel Abroad


All students, faculty, and staff planning to travel abroad should review Creighton's Travel Policy.

Study Abroad Policies and Procedures

All students wishing to study abroad should carefully review Creighton University's Study Abroad Policies and Procedures prior to submitting an application via the Jays Abroad study abroad application portal.  When submitting a Creighton study abroad application, each student must acknowledge that he/she has read and understood Creighton's Study Abroad Policies and Procedures. The GEO encourages all students to share this information with their parents and/or guardians.  A hard copy of the document below is available for reference in the GEO.

2019-2020 Study Abroad Policies and Procedures

New Grading Policy for Fall 2018 Onward

From Fall 2018 onward, courses taken while studying abroad will transfer back to Creighton University with a letter grade.  These grades will be factored into a student's Creighton GPA.  Grade equivalency charts were published on the study abroad website in early 2018 to help students understand how the grade abroad will reflect on the Creighton transcript.  This change is in contrast to the former "Pass/Fail" grade policy.  Additional details can be found under Academics Abroad.

This change has been reflected in an updated Study Abroad Policy and Procedures document dated June 2018 (see above).
