Grading and Transcripts


All students receive a cumulative letter grade for each course corresponding to a four-point scale (4.0=A, 3.67=A-, 3.33=B+, 3.0=B, etc.). The exact breakdown of each course grade will vary from course to course, although typically the final grade reflects a combination of examinations, class participation, term papers, and/or group projects and presentations.


Transciprs are typicaly sent to students' home institutions within 6 to 8 weeks after the end of each semester. To request additional transcripts (either hard copy or scanned), please contact UPCES and provide the email/mailing address for the transcript(s) and any other relevant details.
