TU Study Abroad Update

Hello from the TU Study Abroad Office! We hope you are enjoying your study abroad adventure and are making the most of your experience. Please review the information below regarding registration, reminders about key study abroad policies, and useful resources to help you while are away.

Course Registration Information
It is time to think about registration at Towson for Summer and Fall 2015. Visit the Academic Calendar to check on the dates!

Graduation
Are you planning on graduating soon? If you have not already applied for graduation, contact the Graduation Office immediately at 410-704-2095. Applications and further instructions can be found on their website. If you will be graduating within one year of your study abroad experience, follow the tips below and call the Graduation Office if you have additional questions:

  • Email an official verification of your enrollment abroad (course titles and equivalent U.S. credit hours) to graduation@towson.edu once your schedule is finalized.
  • Ask your host institution program to release your transcript as soon as possible upon completion of your studies overseas and have it sent to the TU Study Abroad Office. If your overseas transcript(s) will be arriving more than 6 weeks after the graduation date for which you applied, you may need to defer your graduation until the following semester.
  • Check out the Commencement webpage for information about ordering your cap and gown.
  • Failure to follow these procedures may result in delay of graduation.

Ask for help!
Studying abroad is an exciting adventure but is also academically challenging. Adjusting to a different style of teaching and learning can be difficult. We encourage all study abroad students to make use of all the support services and tutorial assistance offered by your program or host institution – help is out there so don’t be afraid to ask for it! As always, you can find us at studyabroad@towson.edu.
