Course Equivalency Process

Students are able to take credits towards their GVSU degree abroad. Some of the courses have been Pre-Approved. For courses that have NOT been pre-approved, students will need to complete the course equivalency process. Here is how the process works for Departmental Course Equivalency Advisors: 

STEP 1: Student will contact you, requesting a course equivalency. 

STEP 2: Please fill out the information via the online form (sent via email by the student), paper form, or by emailing Ehren Kuzekov (kuzekove@gvsu.edu
