Academic Admission Requirements
Undergraduates with a 2.5 cumulative GPA and graduate students with a 3.0 cumulative GPA are eligible to apply to the UNO-Innsbruck International Summer School. Non-UNO students must submit an official transcript and other application materials to the UNO-Innsbruck program administration. New students seeking college credit must meet the general admission requirements of the University of New Orleans.
Student Conduct Admission Requirements
Students must be in good standing with their home institution to be considered for admission to the UNO-Innsbruck International Summer School. As part of the program application, all students must complete the “Academic & Disciplinary Record Form,” including the authorization to release academic and disciplinary records to the UNO-Innsbruck program administration for verification with the Student Conduct office at the home institution. These records, which will be reviewed by authorized program personnel only, will be used to determine eligibility for admission to the program. Students on disciplinary and/or academic probation will not be accepted to the UNO-Innsbruck International Summer School.
Examinations, Transcripts & Diplomas
•Mid-term and final examinations will be given in all courses. Regular attendance is required of every student.
•An official transcript of grades and credit hours earned will be sent by the University of New Orleans to all students’ home institutions who complete THE INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL.
•A special diploma for THE INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL will be awarded to students who complete at least nine hours with academic distinction (at least two A’s and one B).
•All students will receive a special certificate of attendance reflecting course grades.
Registration and Scheduling
•Registration is complete upon receipt of a student’s formal online application, deposit and several other forms (See Forms and Downloads). Students will be notified in writing when they are accepted into the program.
•Course scheduling will be arranged based on a student’s preference list. In the event of time conflicts or if class quotas of 15 per class have been reached, students will be assigned to course(s) on their alternate list. Both first preferences and alternates must be listed on the course selection form. Class registration will be based upon date of acceptance.
•THE INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL requires all students to complete at least 6 hours (2 courses). A student may choose a 3rd course, thus earning 9 hours, after March 1, based on availability. No additional tuition will be due for a 3rd course.
In keeping with the purpose of THE INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL, courses taught are those enhanced by the setting in Austria and Europe. A concerted effort is made in all courses to reinforce the classroom instruction with the rich cultural surroundings.
All courses are taught in English. However, students are urged to take a German or Italian language course either before or during the summer for a better appreciation of the European experience.
All courses listed will carry three credit hours unless otherwise indicated. The academic regulations currently in force at the University of New Orleans will apply in
Innsbruck as well. Freshmen and sophomores are eligible to enroll in courses numbered 1000 and 2000, and
Guest students are responsible for securing approval from their own schools for the courses they wish to take.
The University of New Orleans and THE INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL believe strongly that the European
educational experience should be made available to as many qualified students as possible. To this end, a limited number of awards are available to UNO and UGA students who exhibit high academic achievement, can clearly demonstrate financial need, and whose academic plans will
benefit most from this experience. Recipients are designated as Ambassadors and are expected to assist with the program while in Innsbruck. For further information visit the links below:
Federal Financial Aid is generally also available for this program, depending on the eligibility of each student.
