For each semester of academic work completed abroad, you may earn up to 12 credit hours. Course credit transfers to S&T, but your grades will not appear on your S&T transcript and are not calculated into your grade point average. Courses abroad are recorded as a Pass or Fail and will shows an “ex” on your S&T transcript. Courses you pass will earn your credit hours toward your degree, but will not affect your GPA. Although you will receive credits for successfully completed courses, you must work with your academic advisers to get approval for how the courses you take might fulfill specific degree requirements at S&T.
