Welcome Back

Welcome Back!

Welcome back study abroad alum! Now that you are experienced travelers and have landed safely back in the U.S., the Office of Global Education and Partnerships would like to extend its support to you as returnees. This page will serve as the center for all things post-study abroad. Check out all of the activities and opportunities we have available for you!

(All opportunities and activities are only available for students who have already completed a study/internship abroad through MU programs, Non-MU programs, or Student Teaching Abroad with the exception of the Ambassador Program.)

Study Abroad Survey

Global Education wants YOUR FEEDBACK about your study abroad experience. Help us help future participants by completing the return SURVEY.

Global Education Ambassador Program

Don't leave your study abroad experience behind! Consider becoming a Global Education Ambassador!

What is the Ambassador Program?
The Global Education Ambassador program is a creative outlet for sharing your study abroad experiences. Ambassadors are able to meet other students who are planning to study abroad while gaining professional experience creating and organizing events. After completing the program, Ambassadors earn an official Global Education Ambassador Recognition Letter and Certificate. (Great for portfolios and resumés!)

What's the commitment?

Participate in two activities to help Global Education. For example:

  • Share your insider information and expertise about your study abroad location at a Study Abroad Info Session
  • Help prepare students who are about to depart for studying abroad

Create and coordinate your very own event. For example:

  • Present the value of your study abroad experience to a Millersville class, organization, or club
  • Host a social activity for the international exchange students

You are three activities away from becoming a GLOBAL EDUCATION AMBASSADOR!

How do you get started?

Intern at the Office of Global Education!

Already thinking ahead about how you can make your study abroad experience work for you? Check out the links below for more information about exciting internship opportunities available at Global Ed!

Internship details for the following majors: Anthropology, Business, Communications, Government, International Studies and Sociology

Internship details for Public Relations Majors

If you are any major other than what is listed above, you should contact your academic advisor(s) ASAP and ask if they would be willing to grant you credit for this internship. Make sure to send them the job description! Global Education only accepts students who are interning for academic credit.

Credit/Class Transfer

The Office of Global Education emails study abroad participants while they are abroad to confirm that all classes taken at their host institution match those listed on their Residents Credits Form (and that pre-approved equivalencies have been provided).  If you responded to this email and finalized course equivalents for any courses you took that were not originally on your Resident Credits Form, there should be no issues with the transfer of your credits.

Your host university/program will send transcripts directly to either our office or to the Registrar's Office. If your Resident Credits Form matches the courses listed on your transcript and we receive the transcript at Global Education, you will receive via email an electronic copy of your transcript before we forward the original to the Registrar's Office. Note: It can take up to 6 weeks to process the transcript so that your classes taken abroad appear on your DARS.

If you took any classes that were not listed on your Resident Credits Form and your Resident Credits Form was not revised, there will be a delay to get your credits posted to your DARS. If this is the case, you must contact Global Education or your Program Coordinator directly for further instructions. Your transcript cannot be processed without your Resident Credits Form being revised.
