Registering for Classes

Participants in the Exchange Program must register for classes usually before arriving in the United States. Class registrations are done online through a student's ecampus account, which is the student's web access to records, financial aid accounts, class schedule, etc. An ecampus account is set up as soon as an international student has been accepted to the Exchange Program at Santa Clara University.

Exchange students in the Leavey School of Business or the Engineering school must coordinate preferred courses with a designated staff member in the Study Abroad Office prior to the registration time.  Due to procedural rules, these students are not allowed to register themselves on eCampus and must have their courses approved early.

Exchange students in the Arts & Sciences school normally register themselves on eCampus.  Read more about eCampus, below.

You can access this system here. Each student needs an ID and a password in order to log into the system. Both are automatically generated when you are admitted as an exchange student into the SCU system. You should receive an email after you are admitted into the SCU system to the email address that you listed on your application materials for SCU. For this reason, please make sure that you list an email address that you can check and keep while you are abroad. Also make sure to write CLEARLY or type this information.

If you do not receive an email from SCU about how to activate your e-campus account (it will come from, please let us know as soon as possible.

Students having difficulty logging into eCampus can send a message to Please be sure to provide your name, SCU student ID number, and email address.

If you are having trouble registering yourself via e-campus, please contact the Study Abroad Office ( for further information.  Once you get to campus, please make sure to come by the Study Abroad Office so that we can make sure that each one of you has the information you need about your classes.

If for any reason you are unable to attend the classes you have registered for on the first day of class, please let SCU Study Abroad know.  Professors have the right to drop students who don’t attend the first class—and you may discover that you are no longer enrolled if you don’t show up.
