Policies & Procedures for Study and Travel Abroad
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.
Study Abroad Grading Policy
Courses taken while studying abroad will transfer back to Creighton University with a letter grade, and these grades will be factored into a student's Creighton GPA. Grade equivalency charts were published on the study abroad website 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 2019-2020 (see above).
