Indicate Study Abroad


When students engage in international study, they receive credit at CWRU. Students who study abroad register for a class or a study abroad placeholder in SIS.

There are a few special elements when scheduling a study abroad class. A Course Attribute value is added to help students identify study abroad classes in Class Search. Additional meeting patterns are added for pre- and post-trip meetings. Lastly, a Class Note is added to direct students to the Study Abroad office.

This guide will describe how to indicate a study abroad class section.
