Study Abroad for Honors

In coordination with the MU Student Travel Abroad Review Committee, the Honors College will not consider any approvals for study abroad or university-related international travel while the Department of State global level 4 health advisory is in place. This ban on approvals for Honors credit currently extends through the end of Summer 2020 (August 01, 2020). A decision on Fall 2020 or AY 2020-21 study abroad programs will be made at a later date.

Up to six hours of study abroad credit completed while a student at MU may be considered as honors credit for Honors College students. Students must achieve a minimum letter grade of “B” or higher to receive honors credit.

Requests to use study abroad courses for honors credit must be approved by the Honors College director prior to the start of the study abroad program. Submission of this form must be completed no later than the dates given below, prior to start of the MU semester in which you will study abroad; exceptions will not be granted or approved:

    • Spring Semesters: December 10th
    • Summer Semesters (including programs run in May and August): April 10th
    • Fall Semesters: July 10th
    • Winter Semesters (including programs run in December and January): October 10th

If you have a program where registration for courses is later than these deadlines, you must still submit the form for preliminary approval and work with your Honors advisor and the Director to get formal and final approval once classes have been selected.

The below form must be filled out in its entirety. Incomplete requests will not be reviewed or approved.
