Leave of Absence and Study Abroad
College Without Walls
Wittenberg has a "college without walls" - the world! Approximately 20 percent of our student body studies abroad. Every student is encourage to participate in an international program most tailored to her or his interests. Options include programs operated by Wittenberg, others with which it affiliates, exchange programs, internships abroad, or those directed by other institutions. The options are many and varied, including programs all over the globe. Even some international students take advantage of the opportunity to study overseas, further expanding their educational experience.
Office of International Education
Wittenberg maintains a full-time office of International Education to assist students with study and travel plans and to counsel them with integrating international dimensions with educational and life goals. A minimum 2.5 grade-point average is required for study abroad.
Course work to be taken through international education programs sponsored either by Wittenberg University or by other accredited institutions must be approved by the Office of International Education at Wittenberg prior to enrollment in the program.
Grades are reported for all study abroad programs (including affiliated domestic programs) as they are transmitted to the Registrar. The grades are shown on the transcript but not calculated in the GPA except to determine final academic honors at graduation.
