W.A. Franke Semester Global Experience Policy

Students in the W.A. Franke Honors College who complete a University of Arizona semester-long study abroad experience will have the number of Honors credits needed towards graduation reduced by 6-units. The study abroad reduction can only be used for one semester program and is not applicable for multiple semester programs. 

Students who are abroad will be assessed the Honors Fee and will maintain access to their Honors benefits while abroad. The credit reduction will take place after the study abroad experience is completed.  If the study abroad program offers University of Arizona Honors direct credits, the student would not be eligible for a reduction. The philosophy guiding this policy is that a semester-long study abroad is an extensive immersive experience which enhances a global mindset for interdisciplinary thinking and problem-solving.
