Conversion of Semester Units to Quarter Units

The Registrar converts all transfer units to quarter units, using the following formulas:

  • number of semester units x 1.5 = number of quarter units
  • number of trimester units x 1.5 = number of quarter units

Once all transfer credit has been reviewed and applied toward a student’s degree, any remaining fractional credit > .5 credit will be rounded in favor of the student; < .5 will be rounded down. Therefore, Fractions lower than one-half unit (0.5) are rounded down to the nearest unit.
