Academic Information: Faculty-Led
You will need to register for your program’s courses before you depart. Also, make sure that you have completed any necessary credit approvals before your program begins.
Whether you're taking courses to fulfill theme, major, minor, or general requirements, make sure you know ahead of time how these courses will help you work toward your degree. If you have any question, contact your academic advisor.
GVSU Faculty-Led programs will normally require a permit to register for the class offered abroad. Either your faculty director will give this permit directly to the registrar, or (s)he will give it to you. You will then take the permit to a ‘transaction window’ at GVSU locations in Allendale, Grand Rapids, Holland, Muskegon or Traverse City.
GVSU Faculty-Led courses will be taken for a grade as they are assessed by a GVSU professor. (Although, your faculty director may not be your only instructor.) Understanding the specific nature of your program will help you determine the way in which you will be assessed, and who will be assessing your work.
You will be expected to evaluate the instructor and program after your stay. The link to the evaluation will be sent to you via e-mail. In addition, PIC emails program evaluations, which assesses all aspects of the program beyond its courses. Just like regular course evaluations, these are confidential evaluations.
