GRADING SYSTEM Just like American students, you will have to submit your academic transcripts as part of your application for admission to university or college. Academic transcripts are official copies of your academic work. In the U.S. this includes your “grades” and “grade point average” (GPA), which are measurements of your academic achievement. Courses are commonly graded using percentages, which are converted into letter grades. The grading system and GPA in the U.S. can be confusing, especially for international students. The interpretation of grades has a lot of variation. For example, two students who attended different schools both submit their transcripts to the same university. They both have 3.5 GPAs, but one student attended an average high school, while the other attended a prestigious school that was academically challenging. The university might interpret their GPAs differently because the two schools have dramatically different standards. Therefore, there are some crucial things to keep in mind: You should find out the U.S. equivalent of the last level of education you completed in your home country. Pay close attention to the admission requirements of each university and college, as well as individual degree programs, which may have different requirements than the university. Regularly meet with an educational advisor or guidance counselor to make sure you are meeting the requirements. Your educational advisor or guidance counselor will be able to advise you on whether or not you must spend an extra year or two preparing for U.S. university admission. If an international student entered a U.S. university or college prior to being eligible to attend university in their own country, some countries’ governments and employers may not recognize the students’ U.S. education.
Degree Levels Available
Degree Level Average Completion Time (full-tme) Common Prerequisite
Associate degree                 2 years High school diploma or equivalent
Bachelor's degree             4 years High school diploma or equivalent
Master's degree           1-2 years Bachelor's degree
Doctoral degree           2+ years Master's degree (sometimes bachelor's degree is acceptable)
Universities and community colleges award degrees at varying levels, from associate's degrees to doctoral degrees. When comparing different degrees, students can consider which program best fits their career goals and academic interests. There are four major categories of degrees available for postsecondary students: associate, bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees. Earning one of these degrees can take 2-8 years, depending on the level of the degree and field of study. Graduate-level programs may require students to complete one or more undergraduate programs prior to enrollment.
