The Education Abroad Office works in tandem with Student Financial Services and the Office of Fellowships to provide outside resources to help students plan and prepare for their time abroad.
The majority of education systems operate on the semester system. While Seattle University operates on the quarter system, most SU-Sponsored, SU-Exchanges, and Non-SU programs operate on the semester system. Therefore, depending on the program and when you go abroad, there are different credit and financial considerations. Below is an illustration highlighting the basic differences in credits and finances between the quarter system at SU and studying abroad for a semester (or two!) on SU-Sponsored/SU-Exchange and Non-SU Programs.
Consult with your Academic Advisor to see how credit transfers will impact your academic progress towards graduation. Consult with Student Financial Services for detailed information regarding your individual financial aid.
