Credit Approval Form Changes
Good afternoon! We in the Office of International Education
have made a few changes to the Credit Approval Form process
for those going on exchanges and external study abroad
This form is the vital tool whereby you pre-arrange to
transfer in your classes abroad for credit, as well as
maintain your status at the university for financial
aid, housing, and other purposes.
1) We have created a new form; it will now consist of two
two-sided sheets in order to allow more room for
instructions and assistance, and to provide you with more
space for filling out information.
Please turn in the second page (filling out both the front
and back) and keep the first page with you as a reference.
The hardcopies soon to be available in our office are
perforated, printed on white paper, and include both black
and red ink. Please use this new form as soon as it is
available (early July) instead of the older form (a single
sheet of tan paper).
The new form will also soon be available for printing at the
same address as the old one:
2) There will still be a separate form for those going on
the UNO-Innsbruck program (University of New Orleans).
Please check with our office (2-7903 or [log in to unmask]) for
the latest version of the Innsbruck CAF.
3) In order to provide more services and staff, we are
instituting a CAF fee. This fee will go into effect July 1,
2006, for anyone who has not already begun the exchange or
credit approval process.
The fee schedule is as follows:
- UGA Exchanges - $125.00, payable when you first apply
- USG (University System of Georgia) programs such as
Valdosta State, European Council, West Georgia, etc. -
$125.00, payable when you turn in the Credit Approval Form
- UNO-Innsbruck - $125.00, payable when you turn in the
Credit Approval Form
- External Programs - $250.00, payable when you turn
in the Credit Approval Form
A student will be charged this fee only once in a given
academic year, even if he or she studies abroad on more than
one program or does a full-year (two-semester) exchange.
Please make checks payable to UGA and put “CAF fee” on the
Thank you, and have a wonderful study abroad experience!
