    Why study abroad? Ask Michelle Obama

    Academic Credit

     
    Hi my name is Maddy. I was recently accepted as a US State Department Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange student ambassador for the 2014-15 school year. My question is regarding academic credit for school work completed in another country so that students can graduate from high school on time. Credit is not guaranteed and seems challenging to obtain, possibly preventing many students from considering studying abroad. Do you have any suggestions for students requesting academic credit from their high school? I am extremely excited to study in Germany next year and my school has committed to work with me, but I think it is important for students to be assured that they will graduate on time and receive academic credit for THEIR study abroad program.
