To ensure success, Washington State University has adopted a global curriculum model tested and proven by the University of Minnesota’s Global Learning Office.
This model allows WSU’s Global Learning staff to help an academic department to create a custom curriculum, educational philosophy, course progression, and student learning outcomes.
For information on WSU’s Global Learning Curriculum Integration initiative, please contact WSU’s Global Learning staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 509-335-8117.

Credit earned on exchange and education abroad programs is referred to as Education Abroad Credit (EAC) and handled in the following manner:
- Before embarking on education abroad, students must complete a Course Pre-Approval Form to specify which of the following each class taken abroad will satisfy: a major requirement; minor requirement; Honors College requirement; General Education Requirement (GER) / University Common Requirement (UCORE); or elective.
- Academic Advisors approve courses in their department by signing and dating the course approval form.
- After the host institution transcript is received, courses are posted to the WSU transcript as follows:
- A semester GPA will not be calculated, nor will grades be included in cumulative WSU GPA.
- The student’s department will write an exception in DARS so that major/minor requirements are fulfilled.
