Course Approval Database

The Course Approval Database currently contains over 3,000 courses that have been taken abroad by University of Illinois students. All courses in the database are approved for UI credit as indicated; however, you need to work with your academic advisor to determine course applicability to your degree requirements.

The database is not exhaustive: it does not include all available study abroad programs and it may not include all courses offered on a specific program. If you choose to take courses that are not in the database, you will need to work with UI departments and advisors to determine the approval of study abroad courses and credit and applicability to your degree requirements.

As the database is not a program search engine, please use the Program Search to access full information on all study abroad programs offered through UI.

If you have questions, comments, or suggestions for improvement, please contact Nancy Childers at
