Types of Credit

Attempted Credits

Attempted credits are the number of credits a student has originally enrolled in during a specific session or term before grades are awarded.

Degree Credits

Degree credits are those credits earned that fulfill graduation requirements for a graduate program.  Students must earn a semester grade of C or higher in a graduate course for the credits to count toward fulfilment of graduate program requirements at UW-Green Bay.

Earned Credits

Earned credits are the number of credits where a final grade is assigned. Quality points are awarded for graded credits, which is then used to calculate grade point average for the semester and cumulatively. Courses that are graded with a letter or passing grade are calculated in this total; temporary grades of I = Incomplete or N = Not yet graded, are excluded.
