Students may participate in a study abroad activity in order to fulfill credit requirements in their program of studies. When students participate in a semester abroad activity for academic credit, their Program Coordinator must pre-approve their proposed schedule of studies by completing and signing a Learning Agreement. This document must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar prior to departure so that the student can be properly registered.
In accordance with Humber’s Travel Policy, the student must also submit a copy of the approved Learning Agreement along with a completed Student Travel Information Form to the International Office three (3) weeks prior to the start of the semester abroad activity.
Semester abroad courses undertaken through a Learning Agreement will not be included in the calculation of any Grade Point Average (GPA). Students will receive a grade of SAT or UNSAT on their Humber transcript.
Upon completion of the semester abroad activity, the student must arrange for the host institution to send an official transcript, indicating the final grades earned, to Humber’s Office of the Registrar and resubmit an up-to-date Learning Agreement to the Office of the Registrar in order for a grade to be recorded on the student’s academic record. If both these documents are not submitted to the Office of the Registrar within 90 days of course completion, a grade of zero will be assigned.
Students who do not register in or withdraw from courses approved through the Learning Agreement need to request that the host institution submit written verification of this fact. This verification then must be provided to the Program Coordinator and Humber’s Office of the Registrar.
Students must follow the academic calendar and regulations of their host institution.
Successfully completed semesters abroad through exchange agreements will not impact OSAP loans. If a student is academically successful and is currently receiving a renewable scholarship from Humber, the scholarship will be eligible for renewal.
