Academics

UPCES Summer courses  are desinged to fullfill the same credit hour requirement per course (3 credits/course in total) within 6 weeks which is comparable to a coursework during a regular semester.

Course Numbering

All Summer courses are designed specifically for U.S. university junior/senior level and correspond to the upper-level credit distinctions provided at most North American universities. University Academic Advisors should refer to the course syllabi to determine if credit is approved or not for individual courses.

Grading

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.
