Q & A

Study Abroad Programs in General

Where to find information on Study Abroad programs?
All the Information about JI’s Study Abroad programs is available at the JI website: Academics – International Programs.
You may also download the Go Global Brochure to view the details.

Credit Transfer

How do I transfer the credits that I earned in the Winter Programs, Exchange Programs and GDP Programs?
Please first check the JI Credit Transfer Database athttp://10.119.0.206/equivalence/index , search for the name of the universities that you’ve been studying with and find out if the courses have already been evaluated and are transferrable to JI. If not, please start a new course evaluation.
How do I transfer the credits that I earned in the Dual-Degree Program?
Please first check the JI Credit Transfer Database at http://10.119.0.206/equivalence/index , search for University of Michigan and find out if the courses have already been evaluated and are transferrable to JI.

Courses not on the database can be regarded as General Electives. No need to be evaluated.

Can I transfer a P/F course?
Courses which have been graded as P/F on the transcripts cannot be transferred.
How would I find the courses on my transcript or JI degree progress website?
All the courses and credits you earn during study abroad programs, including DD, Exchange, WP and GDP, will not appear on your degree progress system, nor your SJTU official transcript. UEO and IPO will calculate the credits towards your graduation when checking your degree progress.
What should I do if I think the course is better to be transferred to another category, or evaluated as different credits?
Please start a new application of credit transfer for an existing course for a different result. Note to reapply in order to have a different result is unlikely to be accepted if the student does not provide further materials and evidence.

Exchange Programs

What is a typical timeline of application?
Studying abroad for Fall term : January – February
Studying abroad for Spring/Summer terms: August-September
What are my course options?
For courses you can take during an exchange term overseas, please check the websites of the host universities, or you can go to JI’s Course Equivalency Database, search the names of the universities and see what courses have already been evaluated and are transferrable to JI.
What are the terms dates and academic schedules?
For the term dates of different universities, please check the individual websites of the host universities for “Academic Calendar”. Normally in the US, universities run Fall from September to December, and Spring from January to May, while it’s October to late February for Fall/Winter and late March to July for Spring/Summer in Europe, with exceptions vary from countries to countries.
What are the fees and costs?
Tuition is waived. Please understand though that the travel and living expenses will be on students own and there would be no scholarship available at this point to support exchange studies.

Global Degree Pathway Programs

How many GDP programs are currently available?
Currently JI has GDP programs to the University of Michigan, University of Southern California and North Carolina State University in the US, as well as Royal Institute of Technology(KTH) and Trinity College Dublin in Europe, providing more than a dozen programs over disciplines in Engineering, Business, Data and Statistics and more.
What is a typical timeline of application?
