All students participating on study abroad programs are required to complete an Academic Planning Form (APF) prior to departure in order to determine how your study abroad coursework from your host institution transfers to your ISU degree requirements.
This form is not a part of the application and is not due by the application deadlines.
Not only does the APF help you research your program options and find which program is the best fit for you academically, it also ensures that you receive Illinois State credit for the courses you take abroad.
In order to receive ISU credit for an ISU direct-enroll study abroad program, it is the student's responsibility to complete the Academic Planning Form (APF) at least one month prior departure. The APF is not due at the time of application.
The chart below will guide you on who to consult for signing of your APF:
|Gen Ed or IAI or AMALI Requirement||Study Abroad Advisor|
|Hours towards graduation/university electives||Study Abroad Advisor|
|Major Requirements||Major Department Advisor|
|Minor Requirements||Minor Department Advisor|
|Foreign Language requirement/proficiency||Language Department Advisor|
After the form has been reviewed by the Office of the Registrar, it will be returned to you with comments and final approval. Keep this copy for your records.
