Academic credit

Ensure that your program sponsor or host university is prepared to send a study abroad transcript to WSU.

The official transcript should be sent to:

Washington State University
Office of International Programs
Global Learning Department
PO Box 645110
Pullman, WA 99164-5110

Compare your course approval form with the courses you have been taking so that you know what to look for in your transcript later.

After you return, take these steps so make sure you receive proper credit for your study abroad courses.

Confirm your transcript has been received

Be patient and keep checking. It can take several weeks (or even months) for foreign transcripts to reach WSU. After they are received, it will take 2 to 4 weeks to process and have them posted to your WSU transcript.

If your transcripts have not arrived after 4 months, contact your program provider or the university you attended to confirm a transcript was sent to the correct address. If the transcript has been sent, contact the Office of International Programs.

Until your transcript arrives from abroad, your WSU grade reports will show an “I” grade for EA 300 or ISE 300. When the transcript arrives, these placeholder courses will be replaced with the actual courses you took.

Confirm study abroad credits have been correctly applied to your WSU transcript

If your degree report has not been updated accurately, contact your academic advisor. If you need further assistance after talking with your advisor, please contact the Office of International Programs.
