Texas A&M departments and student organizations sometimes coordinate group experiences for students. These programs are either transfer credit programs or non-credit bearing. They typically entail traveling only with students from Texas A&M and offer experiences of cultural enrichment, internships, research, and volunteer opportunities. Some, however, might entail participating in an experience with non-Texas A&M students.
Application ProcessFor student groups and non-academic group trips, participants are selected by the program leaders/coordinators. Once the participant list is confirmed for a trip, eligible students are provided instructions by their program leader(s) on how to complete the registration process with Education Abroad. Students must complete this registration prior to departure.
For transfer credit group trips, participants will have a dual application process. They first complete an application with Education Abroad which includes a form to pre-approve program courses for transfer credit. Once approved by Texas A&M, students will then be provided with the information to submit to the coordinating provider/institution to secure participation.
Course Registration (if applicable)For experiences granting credit for the term abroad, the program contact will inform confirmed participants of which placeholder course to register for before departure.
