Course Credit Notes: 

At Framingham State University we report coursework on a per course basis.  Each graduate course that is part of a degree program is four credits and is shown on the student transcript as “1.0”.  Courses that are less than four credits are shown as a portion of “1.0”.  A three credit course is “.75”, a two credit course is “.5” and a one credit course is “.25”. There is a short definition of this method on the reverse side of an official transcript issued by our Registrar’s Office.
