Returning to Iowa State

Be aware that your foreign transcript will be delivered to the Office of Admissions approximately 6-8 weeks following the completion of your study abroad program (coursework will appear in the elective section of your degree audit).

Work with your academic advisor to apply your foreign coursework to the appropriate section(s) of your degree audit. Contact your study abroad advisor, if needed.

Consider taking WLC 491: a 1-credit Pass/Fail course open to all ISU students who have returned from study/internship abroad. You will learn how to highlight your study abroad experience for your job search as well as connect with other students who have returned from abroad. This is a Spring course only.

Continue your adventure at Iowa State:

  • VOLUNTEER: Help out study abroad advisors and program directors to answer questions at ISU’s Study Abroad Fairs (in September and in January) and/or pre-departure orientations. Share a blog, vlog or photos with your study abroad advisor.
  • LEAD: Apply to become an LAS global ambassador, WLC student ambassador, or Study Abroad Center peer advisor (all are paid positions).
  • EXPAND: Join the Study Abroad Squad (ISU student org) and make friends with fellow study abroad enthusiasts!
