Credit-Grade Conversion

Below is credit-grade conversion information for all semester/academic year programs offered through the IPENG office. If you are going on campus Illinois Abroad and Global Exchange Office programs, you 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 Illinois 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, you must receive the equivalent of a University of Illinois C- in order to receive credit for a study abroad course. Courses taken for credit/no credit do not affect a student’s GPA.

If you are in in another College (College of Business, College of ACES, etc.), you should follow your College’s instructions.
