Grading and Certificates
Students will be assigned final grades upon successful completion of each course.
Scale of grades at LUT:
5 = Excellent
4 = Very good
3 = Good
2 = Satisfactory
1 = Sufficient
0 = Failed
Some courses apply grading scale H = Passed, 0 = Failed.
Grades are recorded on an official either LUT or Saimaa UAS transcripts, along with the course name and credit earned. Grades are given in accordance with the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). For conversion to US and Australian credits: 1 ECTS credit = 0.5 US credits = 0.8 UTS credits.
At the end of the LUT Summer School international students receive two documents: Certificates of Attendance and official transcript of records:
- All international students receive general Certificate of Attendance at the end of the summer school.
- Official transcripts of records along with the course name(s) and credits earned will be mailed to students in September. Credits completed on the Master's level courses will be on the transcript by Lappeenranta University of Technology and credits completed on the Bachelor's level courses will be on the transcript by the Saimaa University of Applied Sciences.
If the student has completed courses both on Master's and Bachelor's levels, he/she will receive two separate transcripts.
Credits earned during the LUT Summer School are transferrable to your home institution. If you want to transfer your LUT Summer School grades to degree programmes at your home institution, check with your institution advisors about transfer policies and procedures before registering for the LUT Summer School courses.
LUT and Saimaa UAS students
LUT and Saimaa UAS students may also receive a separate certificate of attendance if they wish (please inform the Summer School staff). LUT and Saimaa UAS students can see their grades in Oodi and WinhaWille; transcripts will not be mailed to them.
