Every 45 hours of a class correspond to three US University credits. However, we strongly recommend that you check with your home university before your trip, to ensure that they will validate your credits and to verify the courses, in order to gain the desired number of credits.

Usually, your study abroad director will have this information. If your home university recognizes CLIC courses for credits, our Director of Studies will send progress reports to your home university periodically throughout your course.

Then, at the end of the course, they will also send a transcript to your home university.

If your home university does not want to go through the approval process, you can receive transferable credits through Benedictine College ( https://www.benedictine.edu/about/index). In this case, you’ll need to contact. Dr. McConnell before booking and she will advise you as to which courses to take.
