Resources, Reminders, and Advice

  • Short-Term Director Handbook

  • Short-Term Director Timeline

  • Programs Offered for the First Time: Assistance in developing program proposals is available from the oIP staff. Draft proposals are welcome, and the Director of Study Abroad will provide feedback and suggestions, especially in regard to logistics, academic requirements, etc.
  • Programs Offered Annually or Biannually: Faculty who direct programs regularly or who have directed programs in the past are required to submit all materials from the list above each year. Programs may change in content from year to year, therefore, factors such as costs, locations, size of student group, etc. cannot be assumed to be the same as the year before. Please read for updates to oIP, financial, and university policies. All courses will be confirmed by the department chairs prior to final approval by OIP.
  • College Policies on Course and Program Development: Please refer to the links below for college documentation:

  • Transfer students will be assessed using their transcript from their previous college/university (we use this process for non-JMU students).
