"There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered."
Welcome back Smithies! We hope your time abroad was a rewarding and wonderful experience!
The reentry process can be challenging and will affect each of you differently. Follow the links to the right to find information that will be useful for returning students.
One of the keys to success in navigating your return is to reestablish a routine and make concrete plans about how you are going to spend your time. The Reentry Action Plan is a place to start:

Transcripts / Credit Questions
Transcripts and grade reports from your program/university abroad must be sent directly to the Office for International Study. Keep in mind that it may take a little time for your grades to appear on your academic record in Banner and on your transcript. If you have questions about transcripts or credits, please contact Assistant Dean Lisa Johnson.
