Credit conversion formula must be used for all courses taken on an exchange program. A course can not transfer in to GT for more credits than it’s worth based on credit conversion. Therefore, a GT course can
not be awarded if the number of transfer credits are less than the number of GT credits associated with that course. Number of transfer credits must be calculated for each individual course and must be rounded
down to the nearest whole number. The sum of the rounded down individual course credits must equal at least 12 GT credits for a semester of study (or 6 or 9 credits for summer programs) Updated 11/5/2009
