Credit-Grade Conversion Chart

Below is credit-grade conversion information for all semester/academic year programs offered through the IPENG office. Students going on campus Illinois Abroad and Global Exchange Office programs can find credit-grade conversion information here.

Transcripts from foreign universities must reflect a letter or numeric grade for all courses taken.

College of Engineering students only receive CR/NC for study abroad courses when they are transferred to the University of Illinois. (The only time a College of Engineering student can receive a letter grade on their UIUC transcript for a study abroad course is if the course is for a major or minor outside the College of Engineering.)

Following the same rules that apply when taking a course on campus for credit/no credit, students must receive the equivalent of a UIUC C- in order to receive credit for a study abroad course. Courses taken for credit/no credit do not affect a student’s GPA.

Students in other Colleges (College of Business, College of ACES, etc.) should follow your College’s instructions.
