Please review the following information before submitting your OIE Exchange Student Course Request Form below. The Office of International Education (OIE) will seek approval for UGA courses of greatest interest to you. Please provide a list of 4 preferred subjects and 4 alternate subjects no later than March 15.
This form is only a "request" for preferred courses/classes. We cannot guarantee full access to all specific courses you wish to take. Possible limitations may prevent you from taking a course if (a) you do not have pre-requisites to take the course or (b) the course is in high demand, full, or exclusive to degree-seeking students. Note that the Business, Journalism, Public Relations, and International Affairs are usually oversubscribed. You may need to consider alternate courses in related areas. For Business Students: In general, business students may enroll in a maximum of 3 business courses per semester and 2 courses within the same business department (ACCT/FINA/ECON/MKTG/MGMT, etc.)
The OIE will do its best so that students have a timetable prior to arrival on campus. Upon arrival, you will be make small edits to your course schedule by adding/dropping courses during the first week of class. Graduate students will register for courses after arrival to UGA, in cooperation with their host department graduate coordinator.
