Credits, Grades & Transcripts
All Cornell in Washington classes are regular Cornell University courses and grant academic credit.
You must be enrolled in the four-credit core course to remain in the program.
You may take up to 10 credits in an eight-week period (for instance, by taking an online course in addition to the summer core course). If you wish to exceed that limit, you must submit a request to the registrar of the School of Continuing Education. See credit limits.
You do not have to petition for your credits to transfer onto your transcript.
The academic credits you’ll earn by taking a Cornell summer course can be applied toward an undergraduate degree at Cornell or another school. Please obtain approval from your school advisor first.
