Grading Chart

Students who participate in an exchange program need to obtain the equivalent of a “C” or above for the grade to be considered passing at Drexel. Below is a list of minimum grades needed to pass at each of our partner institutions. These conversions were developed based on information provided by the partner institutions and by professional credential evaluation organizations.

If you do not receive the grade listed below or higher, the course will be listed as “NCR” for “no credit”.

If you withdraw from a course abroad, and it’s listed on the abroad transcript as withdrawn, the course will appear as a “W” on the Drexel transcript. All classes that appear on the abroad transcript must appear on the Drexel transcript, regardless of grade.

The Drexel Global Office must have the official transcript from your host university to process your grades and credits.
