Direct enrollment programs allow you to enroll directly into the foreign university, paying tuition & fees to that university instead of Fitchburg State (you do not have to pay Fitchburg State tuition & fees while you are abroad). You will, however, be responsible for transportation, housing and a student visa.
These programs include courses taught at foreign universities and require additional paperwork (the Preliminary Registration Approval Form, or "PRAF") for credits to transfer.
See the Study Abroad Advisor for assistance with this form, and work with your Departmental Advisor and the Registrar for course approval.
