Academic Advice

  • FIRST YEAR AND SOPHOMORE STUDENTS

    First Year Students

    The earliest you can go abroad is the summer of your first year.

    Students may fulfill General Education Foundation and/or Issues requirements abroad.

    Sophomore Students & Upperclassmen

  • Chemistry students considering Study Abroad should first schedule a meeting with their academic adviser to discuss options as early as possible. Due to the structured nature of science curricula and the fact that other countries often arrange chemistry content differently, finding appropriate equivalent courses requires consultation with your advisers and planning out your schedule a year or more in advance is recommended.
  • Students may take courses to satisfy requirements in their Chemistry Major, Minor, or General Education. Students may also apply for research credits while abroad.  
  • The Chemistry department strongly recommends that juniors explore the possibility of summer research/internship programs abroad. Projects with dual supervision from a foreign adviser and a GVSU chemistry faculty are strongly encouraged.
  • If interested in research, students should first discuss this opportunity with their chemistry adviser; they may enroll at GVSU in a research course such as CHM 399 or CHM 499, supervised by GVSU faculty, and earn credit for it while abroad.
  • Consider fulfilling your Issues General Education requirement abroad.
  • No restrictions have been identified by the Chemistry department.
  • Courses will be reviewed on a case by case basis through the course equivalency process.
