Welcome back! We know that your time abroad has been a life-changing experience. However, the journey does not stop there! Please check out some of the opportunities that allow you to share your experience with others.
Where are my grades?
Getting your grades from your host institution takes a lot longer that what you may be used to in the U.S. Depending on the university, it can take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks for your grades to be fully processed. Contact your program specialist if you have any additional questions about the process.

Study Abroad Student Association
The Study Abroad Student Association is an organization for students who have studied abroad and who are interested in study abroad. It provides an outlet for students to interact with their fellow peers who have either been abroad or are interested in hearing first-hand impressions of various study abroad experiences. Below are listed a few of the activities that SASA plans to implement this academic year:
- Ice cream social for returning study abroad students
- Peer-to-peer recruiting in residence halls and throughout campus
- Organization of internationally themed events
- Interaction with international students on campus.
- Any thoughts or ideas you may have are welcome!
Our organization is not only open to those who have studied abroad. If you are interested in international relation, studies, etc. please feel free to join. Visit their Laker Life page and contact SASA today!
