All courses on the Tufts in London & Oxford programs will be awarded Tufts credit in the corresponding department (or as “All-College” credit if there is no corresponding department at Tufts). However, it is up to each department to decide which courses will count and how they will count toward the major. You should consult with your major department regarding specific courses you wish to fulfill requirements.  For more information please see Tufts’ Global Education pages.  The link to the petition page is here.

Grade rubrics and equivalents

For full year students year-long courses will be listed twice, once in the Tufts fall semester and once in the Tufts spring one, so students earn 4 SHUs in the fall, 4 SHU in the spring and “I” and “II” is used to distinguish between the semesters (eg “Victorian Literature I” in the fall and “Victorian Literature II” in the spring).

Grades which go to decimal points will be rounded up/down -- 0.0 to 0.49 down, 0.50 to 0.99 up.

Pass/Fail, Drop and Withdrawal

To drop, withdraw or take a course P/F you must send an email to Dr Hyde, copying in Melanie Armstrong, that clearly states which course you wish to drop, withdraw or pass/fail by the Tufts deadlines below.  Please remember that all the usual Tufts rules apply (eg re P/F courses and major requirements) and talk to your advisor.  For more information see here.
