your home country were the hardest to reintegrate into your
daily life? Choose a few key anecdotes both from your time
abroad and after your return home that illustrate the ways

DEPARTING SOON FOR YOUR STUDY ABROAD ADVENTURE???

ALL THESE SIGNATURE FORMS GOT YOU CONFUSED???

--If you have a Study Abroad Signature Form from another
university/program provider, a Study Abroad Advisor would be
happy to review your form and sign it for you.

However, depending on the information your program sponsor
asks the OIE to certify, we may need additional information
before we can sign your Signature Form – i.e. academic
standing at UGA (including GPA, rank, etc.) and/or the
status of judicial/disciplinary and academic honesty
records.

--If your Study Abroad Signature Form requires this
information, please request what UGA calls “Dean’s
Certification”.

To begin, sign your signature form (if needed) and make a
request for “Dean’s Certification” at the UGA Office of
Judicial Programs, 130 Memorial Hall.

To complete the process, Judicial Programs will route your
Study Abroad Signature Form through the Office of the Vice
President of Instruction (for academic honesty status) and
the Registrar’s Office (for academic standing
certification).  You may request that your Study Abroad Form
be forwarded to us in the Office of International Education –
 or directly to you.

The full process typically takes approximately 1 week to 10
days - Walk-through requests are generally not possible.

--Once the OIE receives your Study Abroad Signature Form
with attached Dean’s Certification Information, a Study
Abroad Advisor will review and sign, plus notify you when
you can collect your Study Abroad Form at the Office of
International Education in Barrow Hall.

In addition, remember that you are required to complete the
UGA Study Abroad Credit Approval Form (CAF) prior to your
departure.  The CAF will help you keep your student status
at UGA, HOPE and other financial aid while studying abroad,
plus determine - in advance - how your study abroad credits
will transfer to UGA.  (UNO-Innsbruck program participants
should use the UNO-Specific CAF)

--The Credit Approval Form (CAF) should be complete and
submitted to the OIE no later than 3 weeks before your
program date.

CAFs are available on-line at:
http://www.uga.edu/oie/forms.htm

CAFs are also available from the OIE Reception Desk or the
Study Abroad Library.  If you have any questions about how
to complete a Credit Approval Form, call 542-7903 to speak
to or make an appointment with a Study Abroad Advisor.

--Transcripts:  Your Study Abroad Program Transcript should
be sent to UGA in care of:
Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 212 Terrell Hall,
University of Georgia, Athens, GA  30602-0023

--Travel & Health/Safety Tips:  Important information and
web links regarding health, safety, study abroad insurance
and visas/passports is available on-line at
http://www.uga.edu/oie/satravel.htm
