It is possible that a student will not need all 24 of the credits in order to graduate. In this instance, the student can choose to only transfer the fall semester credits to their home institution. The student is required to take the 12 credit spring classes – the Internship and Practicum – but they do not have to transfer over the credits if the credits are unnecessary.
If a student wishes to find out if Capstone classes affect GPA, or if their home university offers a pass/fail option for study abroad credits, they should speak with their home university’s Chinese Flagship program coordinator and/or study abroad office. (Pass/fail is not an option for Hunter College Flagship students.)
Transcripts for the Capstone Year Program at the Flagship Overseas Center in Taiwan can be issued in two ways.
If a student’s home university will accept a transcript from a foreign university, the student can receive a transcript directly from NTU. At this time, we do not know how long it will take NTU to issue a transcript.
However, if a student’s home university requires a transcript from a U.S. institution, Hunter College will process the NTU transcript and issue one from Hunter. Students who have a transcript receipt deadline in order to graduate by a certain time: Be aware that it may take Hunter College as long as three months to process the NTU transcript.
PLEASE NOTE: Different universities have different rules about which transcripts they will accept, and how credits and grades affect GPA. International institutions are acceptable at most American universities, but only if they meet strict accreditation standards. Students should speak to their home school’s Flagship program coordinator and/or study abroad office to find out their individual institution’s rules.
