About IAP: Haverford Policy
Founders Hall, at the "heart" of Haverford College's campus.
At its meeting on April 19, 1985, the Haverford faculty approved a new study abroad policy which became effective in the fall semester of the 1986-1987 academic year. The policy allows students who wish to study abroad and receive Haverford credit to do so by applying to any of the programs on the "Approved" list. Students will be billed for Haverford tuition and, in some cases, room and board.
Monitored by the College's Educational Policy Committee (EPC), the list of approved programs "provides opportunities that both extend and complement the offerings of Haverford departments and answer the specific needs and wishes of the students." Students who elect to study in one of these programs must discuss their course selection with their major advisors and their dean, and must complete the appropriate forms by the deadlines. Some financial aid is available for eligible students. To study abroad, students must have a GPA of at least 3.0 and be in good academic and disciplinary standing.
The EPC has determined that students who do not request and receive permission to study abroad through the International Academic Programs Office will not receive Haverford credit for their work. The EPC will not consider retroactive proposals under any circumstances. Students who do not wish to pay Haverford tuition and/or receive credit, may not attend programs on the approved list.
