so the transcript will come with 'H' grades? what does that mean? I'm curious how they will transfer to US universities.

I have no idea what XAMK is, but obviously it's European. I think you'd have to have an Academic Eval by WES or ECE or whoever, and they would convert any "weird" non-US grades into the US System. Just a guess on this though.

XAMK is a Finnish university. They have a couple of free certificates/diplomas that grant ECTS. For those who haven't seen it previously, there's one on video game creation for up to 25 ECTS: https://www.xamk.fi/en/open-amk-courses/...-creation/ One in rehabilitation: https://www.xamk.fi/en/open-amk-courses/...ii-and-iv/ and a 60 ECTS diploma in tourism and business management: https://www.xamk.fi/en/open-amk-courses/...n-finland/ There are also a number of 5 ECTS courses available off and on: https://www.xamk.fi/en/openstudies/?fwp_...studies-en

Assuming WES evaluates XAMK favorably and the Big 3 accepts them, they could possibly be a good source of almost-free credits for some students. At approximately 2 ECTS = 1 semester hour credit, one would only need to transfer in 12 ECTS or more to make them (with the WES $205 course-by-course evaluation fee) on par or better than paying for SDC courses.

Ah.

Well, it will not just depend on if they will come in, but WHERE they will come in that will be the kicker.  If they're free electives, then they're less usable than you'd probably like, and there are many options for free electives that are cheaper than Study.com.

Please keep us posted on what happens with these.

The 'H' is their equivalent to a 'P'. I'll keep this post updated as things progress. I'm curious also and will see this through to the end.

That's a shame. I was hoping to hear some news by now! With TESU's new policies, this could be a relatively inexpensive way to get some RA-equivalent credits for various degrees.

I'll probably end up asking for an update in a day or so. I've been thinking about it especially since the TESU change.

I bit the bullet and sent the email asking if there was an update. They usually take about a day or two so between tomorrow and Monday I may have an answer.
