Grade calculation
  • GPA = Σ(each grade point X credit hours) / total credit hours
  • Semester grades = Σ(each grade point X credit hours for each course)
  • Semester scholarship GPA = prerequisites (GPA calculated based on grade points) and all courses, including courses with a grade of F
  • Semester GPA = all courses (including those with a grade of F) - excluding prerequisite courses
  • Certification GPA = all courses - prerequisites and courses with a grade of F
Whether to reflect grades and credits for each subject
  • Courses excluded from GPA: evaluated by a pass or fail, excluded from GPA (scholarship, semester, certification), included in earned hours
    - courses : Project1 (COE8019), Project2 (COE8020), English Papers and Research Paper Writing (COE8016), These are common courses for all graduate students.
  • Courses excluded from both GPA and earned hours: evaluated by a pass or fail, excluded from GPA (scholarship, semester, certification), excluded from earned hours
    - courses : Research Supervision1 (COE8017) and Research Supervision2 (COE8018), which are common courses for all graduate students.
  • Prerequisites: evaluated by a pass or fail, excluded from semester GPA and certification GPA. included in scholarship GPA. excluded from earned hours
  • Courses eligible for earned credits: excluded from GPA (scholarship, semester, certification), included in earned hours
  • Undergraduate courses completed by graduate students (system in effect from 2009-2nd semester): grade evaluation, included in all GPA calculations (scholarship, semester, certification), included in earned hours
  • Credit exchange (professional graduate school): grade evaluation, included in both grade calculation and earned hours
  • Credit exchange (other graduate schools with credit exchange agreements): grade evaluation, included in both grade calculation and earned hours, but the timing is different for each school for calculating grades, so they are excluded from the semester scholarship score calculation.
Requirements for Graduation
  • Unlike undergraduate schools, graduate schools have different standards for graduation, each set by department, so please be careful when registering for courses or managing your own credits.
  • Please refer to the menu for information regarding the credit standards for graduation, credits completed, and remaining credits.
  • Students who have been assigned prerequisite courses should be aware that prerequisite courses are excluded from the graduation credit criteria.
  • If you do not complete the prerequisite courses, you will not be able to take the comprehensive exam, which is required for graduation, so you must complete the prerequisite courses in the first and second semester.
