School of Record Relationship


For students studying abroad, a School of Record makes it possible to receive a US transcript for the courses they take abroad. CAPA has a School of Record relationship with two institutions of higher education: the University of Minnesota for students enrolled in the Barcelona, London, and Sydney programs and the State University of New York (SUNY) at Oswego for students enrolled in the Dublin and Florence programs.

Students enrolled in our programs receive a Grade Record document - similar to an academic transcript. School of Record partners review every CAPA course, general academic practices, and standards. With their approval, after the process of observation and evaluation, CAPA’s programs are judged to be equivalent to those offered at the US institution. They are therefore validated for US higher education credit by the School of Record.

Faculty and education abroad administrators from our Schools of Record sit on our Academic Advisory Board (AAB), which provides external oversight for our programs. This board helps us reach our high-level quality goals by conducting annual reviews and by creating reports that are shared with all of our partners.
