What is the credit system in U.S. universities?
Aarnika, Hi Arnika from my undstanding ,A credit is a unit of study, of which a specified amount makes up a course. International students need to complete 12 credits per semester in order to continue in their studies. You need to complete between 30 & 64 credits throughout the course.Your final grade will fall between A (the highest) & F (for fail.) A Grade Point Average (GPA) is then calculated, with a 4.00 being awarded for every A grade, 3.00 for every B grade, and so on down to 0.00 for an F.
