ATTENTION FALL SEMESTER STUDY ABROAD STUDENTS:

CREDIT APPROVAL FORM REMINDER

This is a reminder for students attending a non-UGA study abroad program
or a UGA exchange program (transcript issued by another U.S. or foreign
university) to complete the Credit Approval Form before you depart for
your study abroad program.  The form serves to let UGA know you will be
studying abroad, and to pre-approve your transfer credit, plus to help
maintain your eligibility to keep your HOPE and financial aid.  Students
attending other UGA programs will receive resident credit and do not
need to complete this form.

The Credit Approval Form will require you to go to the Undergraduate
Admissions and then to your academic advisor. When it is complete, it
should be returned to the Office of International Education, 209 Barrow
Hall at least 3 weeks prior to departure.  You will not receive any
financial aid, including the HOPE scholarship, if you do not fill out
this form.

Provided here is the on-line link for the Credit Approval Form:
http://www.uga.edu/oie/forms.htm. The Credit Approval Form is also
available at the OIE Reception Desk in 209 Barrow Hall, the Study Abroad
Library.  You are welcome to call the OIE at 542-7903 with questions
and/or to make an appointment with a study abroad advisor

****

REGISTER ON-LINE WITH US EMBASSY OVERSEAS

The Office of International Education recommends that all current study
abroad students register with the local US Embassy in your host country.
Students may easily register on-line via the US State Department
website:  https://travelregistration.state.gov.

Travel registration is a free service provided by the U.S. Government to
U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country.
  Registration allows you to record information about your upcoming trip
abroad that the Department of State can use to assist you in case of an
emergency, and to receive regular safety/security updates issued while
abroad.  Americans residing abroad can also get routine information from
the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.

ATTENTION RETURNED STUDY ABROAD STUDENTS

STUDY ABROAD PEER ADVISOR PROGRAM:

Do you still want to talk about your study abroad experience?  Need an
interested audience for your study abroad stories and memories?  Want to
encourage other UGA students to study abroad?

The Office of International Education is looking for peer advisors for
the 2005-2006 academic year. We have found that returned students are
one of the best resources for encouraging more UGA students to study
abroad.  Peer advisors assist the study abroad staff by giving
presentations about study abroad, leading discussions and serving on
student panels.  You can choose to participate in as many events as your
schedule permits.

If you are interested in becoming a Study Abroad Peer Advisor, please
contact Julie Escobedo at the Office of International Education,
[log in to unmask] or 542-7903.
