To expedite the process for course registration, the COE/E included a course pre-approval form in the application this cycle for students to set plans for technical coursework and obtain department and dean approval from their home universities. The COE/E is now helping the students register for courses at ASU-US, completing the J1 visa application process, and arranging lodging and other logistics.
