Once you have explored the various programs offered by the Center for Global Education you may find that you have an academic need that is not met by our programming. This does not mean that you cannot study abroad! Mason will allow students to participate in any accredited program and earn transfer credits toward their degree. Before you participate on any program sponsored by another organization you must meet with a Program Officer and complete an "External Non-Mason" program application to ensure that your credits will transfer back.
Please note: George Mason University policy requires that any foreign transcript not presented in English must be officially translated by an accredited translation service provider. For information on qualified translators, please contact the American Translators Association or another recognized translation service such as University Language Service.
