The University of Minnesota Code of Conduct covers the expectations and requirements put forth by the University of Minnesota. All students are held to this code of conduct whether studying on campus or abroad. When studying abroad students are responsible for adhering to their host university’s code of conduct or policies as well. Students should read University policies to understand the expectations of the University and ramifications if they violate the code.
To read more about student rights and academic policies please visit the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities’ Learning Abroad Center website on policies.
Please note that the Academic Center for Enrichment will run an academic and disciplinary record check for students seeking nomination for a study abroad program. This allows us to complete required home school nomination forms and consider a student’s academic and disciplinary history while attending the university when nominating them for an exchange. Students from outside of the University of Minnesota system who are applying for a Morris sponsored program must provide a letter of recommendation from their home university which comments on their academic and disciplinary record.
Students should complete an Academic Planning for Study Abroad form (available in the Academic Center for Enrichment) prior to going abroad to have their courses pre-approved for transfer.
When study abroad transcripts are received by the Morris campus, the registrar will consult your course pre-approval form as credits are entered on your record. Students participating in University of Minnesota system programs or co-sponsored programs receive resident credit for their programs. Students who participate in outside programs and transfer credit exchange programs will receive S/N credits on their Morris transcript and listed only as number of credits received and university attended (course titles and grades will not be included) on your U of M transcript. Students must earn a C- or better to earn an S, satisfactory, grade. An N indicates that no credit will be granted.
