OBTAINING ACADEMIC CREDIT

Often times, students choose to obtain academic credit for their Outward Bound Costa Rica course. Currently, we offer our students two options for academic credit:

Students can work with an academic advisor at their school to develop an independent study option, in which case Outward Bound Costa Rica can issue an official academic transcript. Alternatively, students can earn up to 12 university credits through our partnership with Western State Colorado University (WSCU), which they can later transfer back to their school.

For further information on how to obtain academic credit via independent study or WSCU, we encourage our students to use our Academic Credit Packet (PDF) as a resource and guide. No matter which option the student chooses, it is important to start planning early to ensure credits will be accepted at the student’s local school or university.
