Be sure to familiarize yourself with the Nursing major requirements  as you plan for study abroad. In general, whether you are on the Early Admission or Competitive Admission track, you must complete 128 semester hours while maintaining a 3.00 GPA.
While most of your major requirements must be fulfilled at the U of I, it’s possible that some can be substituted with courses taken abroad. Below is a breakdown of your major requirements in terms of which requirements you may be able to fulfill abroad. In general, keep in mind that a maximum of 64 s.h. hours of transfer credit can be applied toward your major. (Note that programs that offer resident credit, like the USAC San Ramon Program , will not count toward your maximum transfer hours.)
For more information about coordinating your study abroad experience with your academic requirements, contact your academic advisor: Tara Lamb  is the nursing advisor for early decision students. You will want to check with your academic advisor in the Academic Advising Center  if you are a nursing interest student on campus. If you have already been accepted into the College of Nursing, contact Linda Myers  for advice about fulfilling academic requirements abroad.
