Summer Programs Abroad

III-B-7. Summer Programs Abroad

Receipt of credits for courses in foreign summer programs is subject to the relevant requirements of Policy III-B-6 as well as the following:

A.        UST will accept credits from a foreign summer program of an ABA-accredited law school, as long as that program has been approved by the ABA and as long as the student achieves a grade of “C” or better in each course for which he or she seeks credit.

B.        No matter how many credits a student earns in an overseas summer program, the student will still have to be in residence on the UST campus for six (6) semesters. A student may not graduate early because of credits earned in overseas programs.

C.        A first year student who has not achieved at least a 2.00 GPA in the first semester may not enroll in an overseas summer program or make a deposit on such a program without the permission of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

D.        A student may not earn credit in an overseas summer program if he or she is not in good academic standing. For example, a first-year student who has not achieved at least a 2.00 GPA in the second semester may not earn credit in an overseas study program during the summer between the first and second years of law school. Students should bear this policy in mind when deciding whether to make a non-refundable deposit on a program.
