We strongly encourage applicants to be in touch with their U.S. high school administration as soon as possible to discuss credit and to begin to plan accordingly. Our program implementers are not credit-granting institutions and only the U.S. institution where you seek credit can make credit determinations.

Participants should not expect that academic work performed during the program will transfer home. Many participants prefer to complete the courses required for graduation during the summer before departure or after their return from Germany. Some participants receive college credit for the German language skills acquired on the program.

All participants are discouraged from completing U.S.-based coursework while in Germany.
