  • Make sure you pay close attention to class times to avoid any conflicts. Note: When a course indicates MoWeFr the course meets three times a week every Monday, Wednesday AND Friday. Courses with TuTh will meet two times a week every Tuesday AND Thursday.
  • Be sure to read the course description carefully, check for pre-requisites for the courses and specify which pre-requisites you have met at your home institution.
  • Identify courses in priority order on your form so there will be no delays in registration.
  • You must include alternate course choices.

International exchange students will be registered for a total of twelve (12) credits during your first semester. The U.S. Educational system may be quite different from what you will be used to and most past participants have found this course load to be manageable.

Domestic exchange students (NSE) can be registered for three (3) or four (4) UMF courses for a total of twelve (12) or sixteen (16) credits per semester.
