IMPORTANT NOTES:
 
  • Emory College students who are F1 visa-holders and who are not in residence in the United States for the Fall 2020 semester may enroll in up to 2 courses (equivalent to 8 Emory credit hours) at institutions in their home countries and earn transfer credit.
  • Students can also be enrolled in Emory College and take online courses. Student may not take more than 20 credit hours between both the Emory and international transient study courses during the Fall 2020 semester. For example, the maximum number of hours you could take would be 12 credit hours of online courses with Emory and 8 credit hours from an institution in your home country.
  • Students who are not planning to take a minimum of 12 Emory credits online should contact their Emory ISSS advisor for guidance on how this could impact their F-1 student status.
  • Students will need to contact universities directly to find out their process for admitting visiting students. Not all of institutions will be able or willing to admit students for transient study.
  • The usual restrictions related to earning transfer credit after reaching 64 credit hours will be waived for F-1 students studying at home during Fall 2020. 
  • The 8 credits that can be earned during the Fall 2020 semester through this International Transient Study option will be counted and permitted as credit earned above and beyond the Emory College transfer credit maximum limit.
  • Students may seek major, minor, or GER credit for their Fall 2020 International Transient Study courses (subject to departmental approval). Students may not take PE courses, earn a writing requirement, or do an internship for this credit.
