Checked in with MU and your family? Make sure you let Global Ed. and your family know that you have arrived safely and that you are okay.
Check your Marauder Mail lately? This is how all important information is communicated by MU and Global Ed. so don't forget to check it on a regular basis.
Class schedule finalized at your host university?  If you take any classes that you did not get an equivalency for on your Transfer of Credits Form, make sure to email your Program Coordinator and academic advisor right away! Having an accurate Study Abroad Transfer of Credits Credits Form will expedite the processing of your transcript so that your Degree Audit Report will show your classes and grades for your semester abroad and help ensure that you make academic progress.
Keeping a blog or journal? Don't forget to tell us about your experiences. We love to hear from you!
