We call your attention to the fact that the Junior Year in France overall fee does not include the cost of individual art, dance and music instruction which do not result in academic credit [see the JYF Bulletin, p. 10.] Piano recitals and studio supplies are generally not covered. Except for majors in art, music, dance, theater and other performing arts, students will be allowed to take only one studio course per semester within a total of five courses: a studio course cannot be a sixth course. A studio art major may take two studio art courses within the total of five courses.
The Junior Year in France grants credit for studio courses on the same basis as other courses, i.e. one unit of credit for a course meeting approximately 3 hours per week for a semester. However students should be aware of the policy of their own home institution: some schools will not grant full credit for such courses and may require more hours of presence. Other schools will not grant academic credit for studio courses taken in France. Please check your school’s policy.
