Grading and Transfer of Credits

Students who participate in this exchange program will receive credit for all classes in which they receive a grade of C or better, or its equivalent.

The grades from the foreign law school will not appear on the students’ transcripts and not be included in the students’ GPA.

The assessment system in the Netherlands consists of marks from 1 (very poor) to 10 (outstanding). The marks 1 to 3, 9 and 10 are seldom given.

A minimum score of 6 is required to pass a course. For marks with one decimal point, 5.5 is the minimum pass mark.

For the program as a whole, an average mark of 8.25 or higher entitles the student to a pass cum laude (with distinction).

10 Outstanding*
9 Very good*
8 Good*
7 More than satisfactory
6 Satisfactory
5 Almost satisfactory
4 Unsatisfactory
3 Very unsatisfactory*
2 Poor*
1 Very poor*

*The grades 1-3 are hardly ever awarded, and 9 and 10 are very rare.
