Non-Affiliated Study Abroad Programs
SMU students who hold F-1 or J-1 visas and wish to study in their home countries may transfer credits back to SMU from non-SMU affiliated programs or non-US institutions. Petition forms are available in the SMU Registrar’s Forms Library. Students will need:
- Undergraduate Request for Advanced Approval for F-1 and J-1 Visa Holders to Attend a Non-SMU Affiliated Study Abroad Program or a Non-US Institution
- Undergraduate Course Petition for Advanced Approval of Transfer Work Taken Abroad on a Non-SMU Affiliated Program or Non-US Institution for F-1 and J-1 Visa Holders (must complete 1 form for each course to be taken abroad)
Students who are not F-1 or J-1 visa holders may not earn credit from non-affiliated programs or non-US institutions abroad.
