International Transfer Credit Policy for Summer & Winter
for Currently Enrolled SBU Students
Stony Brook offers several unique study abroad opportunities each summer and winter. If you are considering participating in a Stony Brook study abroad program, please visit www.stonybrook.edu/studyabroad for details and application deadlines.
To obtain Stony Brook credit for summer or winter courses offered by an institution outside of the United States, currently
enrolled Stony Brook students are required to participate in an approved partner university
program offered through International Academic Programs (IAP) in the Office of Global
Affairs. All other international credits obtained in the summer or winter will not be eligible as transfer credit applied to your Stony Brook degree program. This also includes international credits taken from U.S. institutions outside of IAP
New York State residents participating in an IAP approved program pay the in-state tuition rate for coursework; all other students participating in an IAP approved program pay the out-of-state tuition rate for coursework. Scholarships ranging from $500-$3000 are available for IAP participants (eligibility based on academic eligibility and financial burden of program). Visit www.stonybrook.edu/studyabroad for details on IAP approved programs, costs, and scholarships.
