1. Davidson Programs
a. To be eligible for participation in a program of study off campus sponsored by Davidson College, a student must be in good standing at the college and must meet the personal, language, and other academic requirements of the program to which he or she applies.
b. Academic credit from Davidson programs off campus appears on the student’s permanent record as ungraded transfer credit, except that in a course taught by a regular Davidson professor, a regular letter grade may be given.
c. The maximum transferable credit for one academic year in another college or university is eight courses; for one semester, four courses.
d. Transfer credit for foreign study is awarded by the Registrar upon the recommendation of the director of the program abroad.
2. Programs Sponsored by Other Colleges or Universities
a. Students may elect to enroll in a foreign study program sponsored by another college or university. The program must be approved by the Office of Study Abroad and courses must be approved in advance by the Registrar. Students may also apply directly to a foreign university for participation in a year-long or semester-long program of study. The same approval processes apply. With the approval of the Registrar and the student’s advisor, students may also enroll for a semester or year at an accredited U.S. college or university. In either case, students are considered to be on approved study leave from Davidson College.
b. For such programs, including summer programs, regular transfer regulations and procedures apply.
