Academic Credit

It's a common preconceived notion that studying abroad will push your graduation date. Fortunately, this is not the case! Students will receive academic credit for any course they take abroad as well as an A - F letter grade. Ultimately, it's a matter of what academic credit they will receive. As long as students thoroughly research their options and work with their academic department early to determine the UNC Charlotte equivalent credit, there should be no reason a student's graduation is pushed! Use the links below or on the left hand side to learn more about the academic credit process for each program type:
