If you are participating in an NC State study abroad program returning home is easy. Your grades will automatically be added to your transcript by your professor like a normal class. However, if you are studying at a different institution there are a few more steps to take. Make sure you are in constant contact with your advisor and the study abroad office. After you return, the host university must send your transcript to the NCSU study abroad office. Once the study abroad office approves your credits they will send your transcripts to staff members in the Environmental Sciences Academic Program office for final approval.
