May I participate in a program that is not sponsored by Wayne State?

There are many advantages to participating in a Wayne State program. However, if our programs do not meet your goals or interests, we encourage you to find a program that is best suited to you. Some search engines like and are useful, when searching for the right study abroad program. 

We recommend that you determine whether the credits will transfer back to Wayne State before you commit to the program. You can do this by submitting course descriptions for those courses that you plan to take to Transfer Credit Evaluation. They will evaluate the courses and let you know what credit you will receive. 

Prior to departure, complete the Consortium Agreement and submit it to the Office of Student Financial Aid. This must be completed, regardless if you receive any financial aid.
