As always, if you are interested in gaining credit toward your major or minor, you must get documented approval for any course taken abroad by the department chair prior to departure of your program.  This rule for major or minor credit applies for Trinity as well as Non-Trinity Summer Programs. If you have any questions, please contact the OSA.
