*More information about AEF School of Record: https://aefirenze.it/en/elon-school-of-record.html and on School of Record:
"A School of Record is an institution accredited in the United States that documents and awards credits for courses or programs taken by students at non-U.S. accredited institutions or through independent program providers who collaborate with U.S.-accredited institutions to transcript coursework taken abroad. The accredited institution which transcripts such coursework acts as a School of Record. As an example, if the University of ABC, a U.S.-accredited institution, transcripts and awards credits to students for courses or programs taken abroad via the Danish Institute for Study Abroad, a non-accredited program provider, the University of ABC acts as a School of Record."
