Grades and Transcripts


The grade received by the student is based on criteria established by the UMD faculty member and approved by the respective UMD department. The final grade received and recorded is determined by the CITS high school teacher.

Credit Transfer

Upon successful completion of a CITS course, students earn credit for high school graduation requirements as well as University of Minnesota credits. These credits can count towards completion of undergraduate requirements through UMD and other University of Minnesota degree programs. If the student does not wish to attend college through the University of Minnesota, the student can attempt to transfer the credits to the school they plan to attend.

Check out Transferology to see how your UMD credits transfer to other colleges and universities.

90% of UMD credits completed through UMD’s CITS program are recognized or accepted at other U.S. colleges/universities.* Recognition by another college/university is at the discretion of that institution. Students should provide CITS syllabi and graded work samples for evaluation to the college/university adviser as requested to ensure UMD CITS credit recognition. Upon request, UMD CITS staff will provide information about the CITS program, the UMD course, and the course grading criteria to your college/university adviser.
