Credits Carried Over (Undergraduate)

 

Due to a discrepancy between applicable credits and credits actually used, there can be 1 or 2 leftover credits each semester. Students are allowed to carry over leftover credits the following semester. (Undergraduate only)

 

 Leftover credit: 2 or less (3 or more cannot be carried over as there are enough 3 credit courses)

 The Leftover Credit Can Be Used in the Following Regular Semester (Cannot be carried over to the Summer/Winter semester)

(Example) Maximum applicable credits: 18

① 2015 fall semester: used 16 credits only as there is no 2 credit course ⇒ The unused 2 credits are carried over to the following semester.

② 2015 fall semester: used 16 credits only as there is no 2 credit courses. Then, withdraw 3 credits during the semester ⇒ The unused 2 credits are carried over to the following semester.

③ 2016 spring semester: The maximum applicable credits are 20. However, if a student uses only 19 credits by his/her own choice ⇒ No more carried over

 

 Conditions/Rules

- If his/her GPA in the previous semester is lower than 2.5 (including F), he/she cannot benefit from the credits carried over.

- If the carried over credits are not used in the following semester, they will be eliminated automatically.

- It is not applicable to a holdover or a student who registered for his/her extra regular semester (9 semester or more).
