Study Abroad: Credits & Grades
Students who attend an exchange program will be issued a foreign transcript. The University of Florida will convert these credits into UF credits. Because credit conversion varies between schools and countries, please check the exchange program information page of the school you will be attending for further details.
Students who attend a Heavener program will be issued a transcript by the university or company that provided academic content abroad. Usually, the university of record will determine the credit hour conversions UF should award.
Grades earned at international exchange schools will be converted to equivalent UF letter grades and will affect a student's UF GPA. Please check the exchange program information page of the school you will be attending for further details on grade conversions.
Grades earned in non-UF courses taken on a Heavener program will not affect a student's UF GPA. However, these grades will be posted on a student's UF transcript. If courses are taken for the business core or major, the grades earned will be used to calculate graduation requirements GPA's.
