When you arrive in France, you will have your first individual conference with the resident director to begin planning your program. She will discuss with you any new documentation she has for the courses and institutions you listed on the tentative program form you filled out in the U.S. or discuss other possibilities if necessary. At the beginning of November and March, you will be asked to fill out an individual schedule of courses. This schedule will be sent to your home college advisor and will be used to write your official transcript. Any changes after that date must be approved in writing by the resident director. If a student drops a course to substitute another, the new course will only be reported on the final transcript. On the other hand, if a student drops a course, but does not replace it, the grade will be recorded as an F. Please note that this was recommended by the Advisory Committee of the Sweet Briar College Junior Year in France.
