SCSU students will be able to take four courses at Vrije University. It is highly recommended that students take at least one cultural course, along with other courses that will go toward their major/minor or general electives. The semester is split into two 8 week sessions. Two classes are taken in the first session and two are taken in the second session. Classes taken at Vrije University are easily transferrable to SCSU. The College of Business has developed an outline of electives for VU University Amsterdam courses and their equivalents at SCSU (Amsterdam Equivalency Guide.pdf)
