Kellogg students studying abroad must enroll is no less than 90 contact hours of coursework (the equivalent of three Kellogg credits) and no more than 150 contact hours of coursework (the equivalent of five Kellogg credits). If students enroll in more than 150 contact hours, they may be required to pay additional tuition.
Transferring classes back to Kellogg
Classes that students take at our exchange partner schools fall into one of four categories:
Category 1: No credit toward your Kellogg degree. This would include language classes and classes that do not cover business content.
Category 2: Credit toward your Kellogg degree but nothing else. This would include business classes that don’t fit into a Kellogg major or classes that students don’t need to count toward their majors.
Category 3: Credit toward general electives in Kellogg majors. This would include business classes that relate to or are similar to classes that fall within Kellogg’s various majors.
Category 4: Credit to replace a specific Kellogg class. Students should only make this request if they believe a course taken abroad is equivalent to a Kellogg class that is required in a major or a prerequisite for other Kellogg classes. Otherwise, please request Category 3.
Class Transfer Request Form
Students looking to have their classes applied toward Category 3 or Category 4 must submit the Class Transfer Request Form below. Please note: if you do not submit a Class Transfer Request Form, your study abroad credits will automatically be applied as Category 2.
Students making Category 4 requests must also forward class syllabi to Global Programs (preferably immediately after submitting this form) in order for the request to be considered. For Category 3 requests, we will follow up the students on an individual basis if any additional information is needed.
We will work with the academic departments to confirm or deny requests as quickly as possible.
International Major and Global Elective Requirement
Any one course taken for academic credit at a participating school within the Kellogg International Exchange Program may count as an elective towards the INTL major and will satisfy Kellogg’s Global Elective Requirement. Classes taken at a university outside the Exchange Program, or for which students wish to receive credit for a specific INTL course offered here at Kellogg, require the approval of Student Affairs and the Director of the International Business and Markets Program.
