Students in the Americans Abroad Program will be granted one-half credit per semester for each academic course
that meets five (5) class hours per week, within maximum of six (6) credits for a complete year's study abroad.
In those school systems where it is difficult to evaluate the course work, a maximum of six (6) credits will be
granted a student for a complete year's study abroad based on one (1) credit for the country's history, one (1)
credit for the language spoken, and four credits for additional course work. Administrators have the right to ask
students to demonstrate proficiency in subject area knowledge before approving credit.
