College Credit

If you are a college or university student participating in a Loop Abroad program, it's likely that you can get college credit for your participation. In particular, our Teach to Travel Experience and College Veterinary Service programs are curriculum-heavy, service-based programs that meet most schools' requirements for providing college credit.

Some benefits to seeking college credit can include:

  • Including the course on your transcript so that it can be included on your vet school application
  • Meeting credit requirements for your school
  • Receiving credit may allow you to use your federal loans to pay your tuition
  • Credit may make you eligible for special scholarships through your school
  • If you would like to get credit for your program, you should start by talking to your dean or advisor. Most schools will let you petition for credit for your participation in programs of academic worth. It us up to your school's discretion whether they will grant credit and, if so, how the credits will be listed. The earlier you start this process, the easier it will be.

    Your dean or advisor will tell you what the specific requirements are for your school. If you need detailed information from us, including classroom hours, workbooks and written materials, provision of service hours, or anything else, please just let us know!

    You might also ask your school if any financial aid is available for your participation.
