Signatures on Study Away Forms

Faculty and staff should always refer students to GEO for signature on study away forms.

If a student asks for your signature on a form related to study abroad/away, GEO kindly requests that you do not sign the form, and instead ask the student to contact our office for assistance with obtaining necessary signatures. Students have two options:
  • Schedule an appointment with a GEO advisor.
  • Submit a general inquiry to .

Why is this so important? First, we take great care to make sure students pursuing study away are eligible to do so. We conduct dean’s checks and conduct checks to make sure Duke agrees the student is in a position to study away for a term. Second, we are responsible for ensuring programs offered by universities and providers other than Duke are properly vetted for credit at Duke. If forms are being signed and exchanged outside of our purview, we risk compromising these important standards.
