GET THE CREDIT YOU EARN
Study abroad programs are approved for university credit through Maximo Nivel’s official School of Record. The School of Record has approved our courses for equivalency and validated the programs for U.S. higher education credit. The School of Record provides enrolled students with an academic transcript and credits are eligible for transfer into any 4-year university in the United States.
Maximo Nivel’s semester abroad and other university courses are taught in a structured, supervised environment to ensure they fulfill all academic requirements. During your Semester Abroad program, you complete a minimum of 2 Spanish language courses, 2 general education or 2 special subject courses, and a 7-week service learning or international internship program. There is a total of 15 academic credits for the semester. Syllabi for each course is available on request.
Academic credit awarded by the School of Record requires an additional tuition fee of $150.00 per credit hour and a $100 registration fee. The tuition and registration fees for academic credit are paid directly to Maximo Nivel. These fees are in addition to Maximo Nivel’s regular program fees.

It is important you understand your university’s requirements ahead of time and that you work with our Admissions Team to be sure you get the credit you need.
Study abroad programs are carefully structured to qualify for academic credit. As a study abroad student at Maximo Nivel you must meet certain minimum standards.

The success of your study abroad program depends on you and what you make of it. You should expect an academically rigorous program. You should also be ready for unexpected challenges that come with living and studying abroad. These include, but are not limited to, language barriers, home sickness, culture shock, and possibly some minor anxiety. You should also expect significant differences in teaching styles and academic administration, as these will clearly reflect the cultural norms of the country. You are strongly encouraged to take a proactive approach towards your studies.
Plagiarism and Cheating
