After the study-abroad period, Columbia College assesses the work you have done while abroad and awards credits on your transcript. Students in Columbia-sponsored programs receive direct Columbia credit and the courses and grades appear on your academic transcript. These include: Reid Hall, Paris; the Berlin Consortium for German Studies; the Kyoto Center for Japanese Studies; and the Tsinghua University program in Beijing.
Credit from approved programs is certified as transfer credit toward the degree when you return to the College and send in your transcripts and other supporting materials. Course titles and grades for these programs do not appear on your transcript and the grades are not factored into your GPA. However, your work abroad is considered part of your overall academic record at Columbia.
