    • Credit transfer is ultimately determined by the student's home university.
  • COURSE LEVEL RECOMMENDATIONS
    • ISA offers course level recommendations for the courses listed below. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on the host university course level recommendations and course codes and are only recommendations. Course numbers generally adhere to the following guidelines:

      • 200-299 Lower-level courses with one or more prerequisites
      • 300-399 Upper-level courses with one or more prerequisites

    • Students who have not completed a college semester of Italian language or the equivalent are strongly encouraged to take an Italian language course while on this program.
    • Italian courses are offered from the Beginner to Advanced level.
  • COURSE FEES
    • Some courses may require additional fees which are to be paid directly to the host university. Lab fees, when applicable, are about $75. Field trip fees can vary greatly. Refer to the course description for applicable fees.
  • TRANSCRIPTS
    • Upon program completion, students will receive a transcript issued directly from the American University of Rome (AUR). The transcript will reflect U.S. semester credits for all courses taken. Credit transfer is ultimately determined by the student's home university.
  • LANGUAGE PLACEMENT
    • Enrollment in Italian courses is determined by the results of a language placement exam administered by the host university. Please note that your performance on the placement exam may not reflect the number of semesters of language instruction you've already completed at your home university.
    • We strongly suggest that students who are trying to place into any level of language beyond true beginning prepare for the language placement exam by reviewing previous coursework.
  • Please Note:
    The courses below reflect the most current list of courses released by the host university. Please refer to this list when completing your pre-registration form. Also note that courses are always subject to change.
