Register

Select the foreign program of interest to you. Coordinate the matter of credit acceptance with your home school or employer in advance.

A. If your home school accepts credit directly from the foreign school, register for study abroad by returning the completed NRCSA PreRegistration Form and deposit to NRCSA. Coordinate credit requirements with your home school.

B. If your home school will not accept credit from abroad and wants you to work through a US sponsoring university, advise NRCSA which foreign school you wish to attend. NRCSA will send you the administrative requirements of the US universities working with that foreign school (different US schools work with different foreign schools).

  • If you appear to meet those requirements (including admission deadlines), first complete and return the NRCSA Preregistration Form to NRCSA with your deposit and a note stating your academic needs.
  • Upon acceptance by the foreign school, you will be given instructions to also register with the corresponding US university. (If your application is denied by the US university due to your grade-point or lack of prerequisites, your foreign school deposit will be refunded in full.
  • You will relate to NRCSA for foreign program information and the US university for credit/transfer credit issues and requirements.
  • The entire process can usually be completed in a few weeks assuming you have the necessary background to take the selected courses abroad.
