A student who has completed eight semesters of study at Brandeis University (or the equivalent in the case of transfer students) and who has earned a minimum of 120 semester-course credits (equivalent to 30 four-credit courses) is eligible for extended credit status. This status allows completion of required course work only. Grades will not be transferred. Students who do not meet the above criteria (eight semesters and 120 course credits) are not eligible for this option and must petition for a ninth semester in residence through the Office of Academic Services. Seniors should contact Gwen Conner (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Office of the University Registrar to confirm that they qualify for this option and to complete an extended credit application.
3. Once approved extended credit courses are complete, submit your final transcript to the following address:
Office of the University Registrar
415 South Street, MS 068
Waltham, MA 02453
Please note that students who are approved to take courses while on extended credit must meet the following grade requirement: B- for summer courses, C- for courses during the academic year.
