The classes you take while studying abroad will count for graded Ohio State credit and be factored into your GPA.

Review Academic Credit and Advising for details on coursework and procedures to follow on faculty-led, third party provider, direct enroll and international exchange programs. 

Visit the Credit Evaluation page to learn how to obtain pre-approval for the courses you will be taking while studying abroad. Each academic department at Ohio State has a transfer credit coordinator with whom you will need to work to obtain this pre-approval. Depending on your course selections, you may need to meet with coordinators from several different departments.
