Coursework Define Affect

Minimum Grade for Transfer Credit

Transferable credit may not be applied toward a degree in which a grade of D+ and below (or the equivalent grade) was earned.

If the course is otherwise transferable, grades of D+, D, D-, and F (or the equivalent grades) are used to calculate the cumulative transfer GPA.

Grades from all graded coursework (A-F), without respect to transferability, will be used to calculate the transfer admissions GPA for all entry terms prior to summer 2016. For entry terms summer 2016 and following, the cumulative transfer GPA will be used to determine admissibility.

If the course is otherwise transferable, transfer credit will be awarded for courses with grades of satisfactory/unsatisfactory, pass/fail, credit/no credit and similar. Students should be aware that some degree programs at KU may require that the sending institution’s policy on credit/no credit align with KU’s policy requiring a grade of C or higher for credit in order for the course to meet degree requirements.

Grades of satisfactory/unsatisfactory, pass/fail, credit/no credit and similar will not count in computing the transfer admissions or cumulative transfer grade point average

Calculation of Transfer Admissions GPA

The transfer admissions GPA is calculated by dividing the grade points earned in all coursework by the cumulative graded (A-F) credit hours.

If a student repeats a course at the same institution, KU will honor the course repeat policy in effect at the institution issuing the transcript. If a student repeats a course taken at one institution with an approved equivalent course from another institution, both grades will be used to calculate the transfer admissions GPA. Credit will be awarded only once for successful completion of a course and only the instance of the best grade for a transferable repeated course will count toward degree requirements.

Grades of satisfactory/unsatisfactory, pass/fail, credit/no credit and similar will not count in computing the admissions grade point average.

Calculation of Cumulative Transfer GPA

The cumulative transfer GPA is calculated by dividing the grade points earned in all transferable coursework by the cumulative transferable graded (A-F) credit hours.

If a student repeats a course at the same institution, KU will honor the course repeat policy in effect at the institution issuing the transcript. If a student repeats a course taken at one institution with an approved equivalent course from another institution, both grades will be used to calculate the cumulative transfer GPA. Credit will be awarded only once for successful completion of a course and only the instance of the best grade for the repeated course will count toward degree requirements.

‘Affect’ or ‘effect’?

Affect and effect are different in meaning, though frequently confused. Affect is chiefly used as a verb and its main meaning is ‘to influence or make a difference to’, as in the following example sentences:

The pay increase will greatly affect their lifestyle.

The dampness began to affect my health.

The weather will affect my plans for the weekend.

Effect, on the other hand, is used both as a noun and a verb, although is more commonly used as a noun. As a noun it means ‘a result or an influence’, as in:

Move the cursor until you get the effect you want.

The beneficialeffects of exercise are well documented.

Over time the effect of loud music can damage your hearing.

When used as a verb effect means ‘to bring something about as a result’. It’s most often used in a formal context as oppose to everyday English:

Growth in the economy can only be effected by stringent economic controls.

The new policies did little to effect change.

The prime minister effected many policy changes.

The key thing to remember is that effect is most commonly used as a noun, whereas affect is typically used as a verb.
