If a student participates in a UNL approved education abroad experience, they are eligible to apply that education abroad experience to the ACE 9 outcome completion. UNL approved education abroad programs include faculty-led, exchange, affiliated, or other programs that students have pre-approved before departure. A minimum of 3 credit hours must be completed during the education abroad experience, either as UNL credit or transferred back to UNL. The experience of education abroad, not necessarily the course itself, will satisfy ACE 9.
Prior to departure, the student will enroll in a zero-credit UGEP 250 course and submit a project proposal. In the term in which the student is abroad, the student is required to submit a 5- to 7-page reflection paper or a creative work addressing a global issue they encountered during their education abroad experience.
(Note: Students who studied abroad prior to Fall 2019 may use the previous "Completion Form for ACE 9 Post-Education Abroad Experience.")
For a detailed explanation of the Education Abroad Experience for ACE 9 option, waiver process, see the ACE website.
