Albany students studying on programs administered by SUNY Community or Technology Colleges must follow the rules for transfer credit, and, if studying for a semester or longer, also apply for a Leave for Approved Study through the office of the Dean of Undergraduate Education.
Consult the college or university that is administering your program for information about requirements and appropriate application procedures.
Students participating on programs administered by 4-year SUNY campuses remain registered at UAlbany and earn Albany credits automatically. Students participating on SUNY Community and Technology College programs will be earning credits that must be accepted for transfer by UAlbany. You might wish to examine options available to you through SUNY 4-year schools before agreeing to participate on a SUNY CC or IT program.
With proper approvals, credits earned while studying abroad may be counted toward your major, minor, or general education requirements in addition to counting toward the 120 credits required for graduation. However, transfer credits do not satisfy any of UAlbany's requirements for credits earned "in residence".
UALbany hosts a general orientation session prior to your departure, and we are available to assist you at all times. Program-specific questions should be answered by the administering campus and the staff at your overseas site.
Housing information is program-specific. Please consult the campus that is administering your program for details.
You will pay tuition as directed by the administering SUNY campus. All other expenses will be paid either to the school which is administering your program or to the provider of the services you are purchasing.
