    B. Contact the appropriate EALL Language Head and ask him/her to review your information.  Some courses, for which there is inadequate information, may not be granted pre-approval credit before the program begins.  In this case, you will be required while abroad or after completion of the program to submit the necessary documents.  Be sure to keep the syllabus and all work completed while abroad.  Before making an appointment with the appropriate EALL Language Head, be sure to provide the following information (some of this information may be in the online application).
