Health and Safety

Academic Preparation

Discuss with your academic advisor(s) before and during the program to discuss how the courses completed will meet your degree requirements.

Faculty Led Programs

Students studying abroad on a faculty led program will be registered in a ENMU class advertised by the program. Upon return students will be given a grade by the faculty member instructing and leading the course.

Student Account Holds

The International Office cannot register you for your time abroad if you have any holds on your student account. Please clear any holds before your time abroad.

Policies and Procedures

Return Registration

It is your responsibility to register for classes for the term after you go abroad. Please consult with your academic adviser to complete this process.

Graduation After term abroad

Due to the fact that it can take up to three months after the completion of your program to post your classes, you will not be able to graduate directly following your time abroad.


International programs will follow the university policies pertaining to payments and refunds.

The Business office bills students December 1 (Spring Semester), April 1 (Summer Semester), and July 1 (Fall Semester).


In today’s society it is very easy to communicate with people from all around the world. Talk with family and friends about realistic expectations when it comes to communication abroad. While you want to stay in touch with your loved ones you also want to live in the moment and make the most of your experience.

ENMU Email: During your time abroad, please check your ENMU email regularly for correspondence and updates from our office.
