Study Abroad

Study abroad courses taken on FSB Exchange Programs, FSB Preferred Study Abroad Programs, and AACSB-/EQUIS-accredited business schools are eligible for business course equivalency pre-approval. Study abroad courses taken on any other program may be reviewed after completion, but there is a risk that the course will not be approved as an equivalent.

FSB Preferred Study Abroad Programs are noted on the Study Abroad Programs Search. FSB Preferred Study Abroad Programs are semester-long programs only. For summer and winter terms, FSB International Programs are recommended for business courses. Students may search the FSB Study Abroad Course Equivalency Database to see what courses students have taken abroad in the past and how they transferred to Miami. This database reflects business courses on semester study abroad programs only.

International Transfer

International transfer courses are courses that are taken outside of the US, either before enrolling at Miami University, or in a student’s home country during summer and winter terms. Courses taken directly at an AACSB-/EQUIS-accredited business school are eligible for equivalency pre-approval. All other international transfer business courses will be reviewed after completion, but there is a risk that the course will not be approved as an equivalent.

How to get a Transfer Course Evaluated

The online FSB Petition to Validate Transfer Credit Form is used to determine a Miami equivalent for a course that will be taken or has been taken at another U.S. college/university and is not an equivalent on www.transferology.com, international transfer credit that is not study abroad (e.g. international student taking coursework in his/her home country), and study abroad courses.

This form should only be used to determine equivalent business courses; non-business courses should be reviewed by the respective departments using the process outlined on the One Stop website. Courses submitted via the FSB Petition to Validate Transfer Credit Form will be evaluated by the chief departmental advisor or designee within 7-10 days. Students will be notified of the outcome via email.
