EAP 599


Note: We will no longer be having in-person pre-departure orientations. EAP 599 requirements have changed! Check below to see the requirements for the term(s) in which you’ll be abroad.

What is it

EAP 599 stands for Education Abroad Program 599 and is a 1 credit hour UK course in Canvas that prepares you for your experience abroad. Topics include how to surf the cultural waves, career integration, and reflection on your experience.

What else does it do?

It gives you full-time student status for your semester abroad. It also is required so that you can have access to financial aid and scholarships. Lastly, it wipes out other UK tuition and course fees (not including distance learning fees). For example, when you are enrolled in EAP 599 plus 6 UK credit hours for a summer faculty directed program, you only pay for 1 credit hour for all 7 credits.

Can you opt out?

If you're an undergrad student, you are required to be in this course when going on a program where you'll be studying, interning, researching, teaching, or doing service abroad during any term. Yes, even summer terms. Graduate students, you have the choice if you want to opt in or out. It may be financially beneficial for you to enroll in EAP 599, so check with your UK Education Abroad Advisor before you decide.

Any student who uses UK financial aid or scholarships to help pay for their program must be enrolled in EAP 599.
