Credit Hour and Grade Conversions

Credit Hour Conversions

Many of our partner institutions, especially exchange partners, do not use the credit hour scale used by U.S. universities, including UNC. For example, European universities use “ECTS”. Use the chart linked below to find the credit conversion scale for your host institution.

 

Grading Scale Conversions

Similarly, many partner institutions have different grading scales than UNC’s. Use the chart linked below to find the conversion chart for your host institution. Remember, you must earn the equivalent of a C or higher to earn any type of study abroad transfer credit.
