The Transcript Notation

Global communities program

Students who complete the following program requirements will receive a Notation on their academic transcript, indicating they successfully completed the Global Communities Program:

  • Ten credit hours of required coursework with a minimum grade of C- or better
  • Residence in Dorchester Hall during freshmen year
  • Participation in programs and events sponsored by Global Communities and the Global Communities Student Association
  • Capstone project

A detailed description of requirements is contained in the “Expectations and Requirements” document each student receives at the beginning of the year.

We celebrate our graduates each year with a reception and ceremony, inviting family to attend. We award a Certificate of Completion and a Global Communities Medallion, pictured above. We look forward to seeing GC alumnae proudly wearing the medallion at their University graduation ceremony!

The academic notation officially recognizes our students' accomplishments, which is useful for future career plans and graduate school applications.The program pays dividends beyond credentials--the relationships with fellow students and our staff is one of the greatest advantages of participating in Global Communities. Our students are part of a network of friends and supporters from across the U.S. and around the world.
