Credit transfer & Academic Policy

Credit Transfer

The Siena School will issue its own transcript for all of its courses at the end of Semester, Summer, and Winter programs. Transcripts list contact hours and final grade for each course taken. Students should contact their home institution to confirm credit transfer procedures.

Credit Transfer through SSLA School of Record

Students on Semester programs who desire to earn credits and receive a transcript directly from an American institution may do so through Northern Arizona University, our official School of Record. Please specify this interest during your application process; we will directly enroll you in NAU courses at a fee of $500 for semester Programs and $250 for winter/summer Programs.

Class attendance

We consider attending class a crucial part of gaining the most from your study abroad experience Students are expected to attend all lectures and excursions and to actively participate in classroom discussions. Only one absence per course is allowed during the duration of your program. All other absences are considered unexcused and each one will incur an academic penalty of 10% off the overall grade of the course missed.

Exams

Exams must be taken only on the dates established by the school. Other than severe emergencies, the school cannot change exam dates.
