College Credit

Did you know that high school students can earn academic credit through Tulane University while studying abroad or online with CIEE? Top-ranked Tulane serves as the official CIEE School of Record for our Global Navigator Language & Culture summer abroad programs. Tulane is a fully accredited institution and is ranked among the top 50 universities in the nation. In their role as School of Record, Tulane is able to evaluate, document, and award Tulane credits earned by CIEE students who request College credit as part of the program application process.
College credits may be used to apply toward your future college degree, to demonstrate your ability to do college-level work, or to test out of a language level in college.


Follow these steps:

Step 1: Pick your favorite Global Navigator Language & Culture summer abroad program and elect the "college credit" option in your completed application. If you are enrolled on an Online program, “college credit” is not optional and included in your program.

Step 2: Pay the $150 non-refundable transcript fee to CIEE and sign the School of Record waiver before April 15. (for Online programs, there are no separate fee, it is included in your program tuition – you’ll just need to sign the School of Record waiver as part of your application, and by the May 20 application deadline).

Step 3: Complete your program and receive your grade.

Step 4: CIEE/Tulane will award your official transcript by December 1 (all grades and credits for students selecting this option are transcribed by Tulane University).

Step 5: Submit your official transcript to the college of your choice

Please note that CIEE cannot guarantee that the university that you eventually attend will agree to accept your credits from this program. Each school has its own policies and full discretion to determine whether and how credits will transfer to their degree programs. If your future school will not transfer the credits, consider asking them if you can test out of language classes or start at a higher level, based on your acquired language competencies.
