      What if my student goes to school in europe for a year and things don’t work out and she wants to come back to US and go to state school? will units transfer? or did we lose a year?

      Transferring credits from a European university to a U.S. state school varies based on several factors:

      – Accreditation: U.S. schools often consider credits from accredited international institutions, but it’s up to the receiving school’s policies.
      – Course Equivalency: Some courses may align with U.S. curriculum standards, making them transferable.
      – Grading Systems: Schools might assess European grades differently.
      – Course Content: The relevance and match of the courses to the U.S. program are crucial.

      Before departure, consulting with both the European institution and potential U.S. schools can provide clarity on credit transfer policies and help plan contingencies if needed. This helps minimize the risk of losing academic progress.
