112.6 Study Away Program Administration

 

A. Background

Furman University conducts faculty-led study away programs and coordinates affiliate and exchange study away programs for students.

 

B. Policy

All study away programs will be conducted so as to provide adequate supervision, generate maximum benefit to the participants, and ensure strict fiscal controls.

 

C. Guidelines

1. Study away programs are reviewed and approved according to the guidelines set forth in Policy 190.8. The Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean has final administrative responsibility for all study away programs.

2. Study away programs will be administered in accordance with Policy 367.5 regarding risk management for off-campus programs.

3. The faculty director is responsible for the administration of all aspects of the program as outlined on the website of the Office for Study Away and International Education and in the Faculty Study Away Handbook. The handbook is provided to all faculty participating in approved programs and is also available on request. The Office for Study Away and International Education will provide training workshops for faculty involved in study away programs.

4. Each faculty director presents a proposed program budget to the Study Away Committee and the Assistant Academic Dean for Study Away and International Education for approval. Within four weeks following the conclusion of a program, the faculty director will file a final budget report with the Assistant Academic Dean for Study Away and International Education, and will submit a reconciliation of advanced university funds to the Bursar.

5. Student evaluations of the program and associated courses should be completed for all Furman faculty-led study away programs in a manner consistent with Policy 122.2. The Office for Study Away and International Education and the Office of the Assistant Academic Dean will provide clear instructions for faculty on procedures for student evaluation.

6. Students participating in study away programs are enrolled in a placeholder course by Academic Records. When all grading for the program courses is complete, faculty directors will submit a grading package including the individual courses each student completed and a final grade for each course. Grades for study away courses must be submitted no later than forty calendar days after the program has concluded.
