  • Agreement by Applicant

    In order to participate in The Forum on Education Abroad’s Professional Certification in Education Abroad, all candidates must read and agree to the following provisions.

    I understand and agree that my responses to the Standards Assignments at the end of each module must be completed and submitted in their entirety before they will be assessed.

    I understand and agree that I must complete all of the Standards Assignments associated with each module, beginning with Module 1 (including the workshop) and ending with the Culminating Project, and I acknowledge that it is highly recommended to attend all workshops related to Professional Certification. I understand that I am required to attend only the workshop associated with Module 1.

    I understand and agree that if I embark on Professional Certification in Education Abroad and then choose* not to complete all modules and associated Standards Assignments that comprise Certification within three years**, I will not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid.

    I understand and agree to abide by The Forum’s Code of Ethics for Education Abroad. I agree to exemplify high standards of honesty and integrity by maintaining the confidentiality of the contents of any Standards Assignments and my responses to those Assignments. I understand and agree that discovery of a violation of confidentiality will result in automatic failure and the immediate expulsion from Certification.

    I understand that if I successfully complete all modules and their corresponding Standards Assignments, including the Culminating Project, I will be granted Certification in the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.

    I understand that I must maintain my Certification by demonstrating continuing professional development, which entails accumulating the required number of points in continuing education and professional development, professionalism or service activities. I understand that I will be required to submit appropriate documentation to demonstrate my continuing professional development. I understand that The Forum may charge an administrative fee to process this documentation if I am not employed by a Forum member institution or organization.

    I understand that failure to adhere to the provisions of this agreement will result in losing my privilege of participating in Certification and/or revocation of the certification.
