Academic Info

Course Load
The maximum number of credit hours you may carry in any given semester is 18. The minimum number of credit hours per semester is 15.

Registration Deadlines
You will register for classes before arriving in Sevilla. You will be allowed to make changes to your schedule during the first week of classes.

Notes on Registration
AAs is true for registration at your home college or university, it is the responsibility of each student to make sure that (s)he has officially registered all course changes with the program.
Non-UNC students should be aware of their home institution’s policy regarding courses and credit hours.

Class Attendance
You are expected to attend classes on a regular basis, take all exams as scheduled by the professor, and turn in written work as required for the individual course. In no case will the UNC-CINECU staff come to your defense if you receive a low grade in a course due to your failure to attend class or to turn in written work.

You should also be aware that:

  • Traveling is an educational experience, but you are expected to schedule your traveling around your academic needs, not vice versa. If you are out of town and in the process miss an exam or fail to turn in written work, you will receive an “F” for that portion of your grade.
  • In order to receive credit for a course, you must be in Sevilla for the entire semester and take the final exam at the end of the course. If you decide to drop out of the program before the completion of a semester, you will receive no credit for courses that you began but did not finish.
  • If you miss a final exam due to illness or other legitimate reason, you are expected to reschedule the exam with the professor and remain in Sevilla until you complete the requirements for the course. It will not be possible to make up work in the U.S.
  • Under no circumstances will the final exam of any LSCS course be given before the official published exam schedule. Please do not ask.

Grades
All grades (notas, calificaciones) in courses will be based either on a number scale (1-10, 10 being the highest grade) or the words sobresaliente, notable, aprobado, suspenso. Students will need to receive a grade of 5 or aprobado in order to receive UNC transfer equivalency (TREQ) credit. Please refer to Credit Information Sheet on the UNC Study Abroad website for more information.
