11 Academic Points of Note Business courses will count toward your MBA (X530: Overseas Business Study) Grades earned while on exchange will be averaged for your final X530 grade Plan ahead regarding credits It is best to complete all of your major/minor requirements prior to leaving (spring exchange participants) Check schools for specific credit requirements

12 Language Concerns? Affordable opportunities for language development available through CIBER Some partner schools offer language training (note: you cannot receive Kelley credit for such courses)

13 Housing, Registering for Classes, Visas, etc… Partner schools exchange coordinator will assist you in planning Partner school will be able to assist you with housing Coordinators will be able to help you navigate through the process of registering for classes Coordinators should be able to provide basic guidance to students with questions about visas, etc, but ultimately it is your responsibility to make sure youve got everything you need to go on exchange –Many countries require that students obtain a student visa –For some countries, U.S. citizens are not required to apply for a student visa if their stay in the country will be less than 90 days –If you need a visa, please allow adequate time for processing

14 Health Insurance Many schools require you to show proof of medical coverage; make sure you are covered Some schools require you to purchase local medical coverage, regardless of your coverage at home Make sure that your health plan has medical evacuation and repatriation coverage –If it doesnt, you can obtain inexpensive supplemental coverage through the IU Office of Overseas Study or elsewhere

15 Financial Aid Additional financial aid to cover study abroad may be available; see Tim Smith for more details If you are a GA, talk with your supervisor and Tim Smith to determine if you can arrange to study abroad and still receive your fee remission

16 Choosing a School Look at the program dates Consider any potential language issues Program strengths, reputation, etc. (see their website) Talk to students who have been there or who are there now Talk to current exchange students from those schools, if possible
