After your semester abroad, BCA Study Abroad will send an official transcript and/or course report to your home college or university and an unofficial copy to your home address. For most BCA programs, the transcripts will arrive within three months after the end of the study abroad program. For example, if you studied abroad in the fall semester, your transcript will usually arrive before March. If you studied abroad in the spring semester, your transcript will usually arrive before August. Transcripts will only be sent if your fees are paid in full.

School of Record
Elizabethtown College acts as a school of record for BCA Study Abroad. This means that Elizabethtown College can issue transcripts for returning BCA students if there is a requirement for the student to have a transcript issued from a U.S. degree-granting institution (Elizabethtown College Accreditation). Please submit a written request for a school of record transcript prior to studying abroad. Please contact director of program services, Elizabeth Huskin at EHuskin@BCAStudyAbroad.org for more information about this service.
