I stepped outside of my comfort zone and met so many friends while studying on the Gold Coast, which has allowed me to stay in contact with people on almost every continent. Being a marketing student, this diverse network will also benefit me on a professional level.

How many credits will transfer back to my home university?
Making sure your credits transfer should be the most worry-free part of your time abroad. Check out our comprehensive Academic Credit Transfer resource for how each specific university abroad computes their credits for transfer. This is something to share with your study abroad or academic advisor during your application and pre-departure process.
When can I expect to receive my transcript?
After you’ve completed your coursework at your institution abroad, CIS Abroad will issue a transcript from the host school to your U.S. home university. This process generally takes longer than in the U.S. (usually about 8 – 10 weeks) but we provide a transcript translation sheet to facilitate faster acceptance of overseas credits. Please keep in mind that academic records will not be released if a student has any outstanding financial obligations to the host university or to CIS Abroad.
I’m interning abroad. Can I get credit for this?
Absolutely! Interning abroad for credit is a great option for many of our participants. CIS Abroad combines online learning with customized placements abroad to create an experience that offers all the inclusions of a study abroad package, often at much less than a full semester abroad!
