Be sure to request a transcript from your host institution before you depart. You may need this in the future for graduate school applications and some job searches. Some host programs will send one transcript to Babson College automatically. It is your responsibility to inquire about this prior to your departure from program. It can take up to two months after the final date of your program for Babson to receive your transcript so please be patient.
Upon receipt of your overseas transcript, your graduate program manager will approve the courses taken and contact the Registrar who will then transcribe the courses to your Babson transcript. This process may take two to four weeks depending on the time of year.
IMPORTANT: The Registrar cannot process your transcript if you have outstanding course evaluations. Please have all courses from abroad evaluated before/during your semester abroad.
We strongly recommend that you verify your grades before departing your host country, as it will be much easier to correct any potential errors while you are still in the country. Remember, Babson will only give credit for courses that come back as the equivalent of a Babson C- or higher. Additionally, you should save copies of all exams, papers, and other graded material, just in case you need to provide additional documentation of your work at a later date. This is especially important when faculty are reviewing courses where syllabi or course descriptions do not indicate contact hours and/or assessment indicators or if you wish to seek concentration credit.
