Chinese and Taiwanese Summer Programs

The University of Missouri does not accept credit from English-language summer programs in China and Taiwan for circumstances in which the credits are not accepted toward degree completion at the host institution. Many of these programs are run in collaboration with a traditional university serving as the host campus but the credits are issued under a “Summer Program,” “International Summer Program” or “International Summer College” transcript. If you have questions about a program of this type, please contact the MU Office of International Admissions at inter@missouri.eduor visit us at 230 Jesse Hall.
