How are Credits Assigned?
Many students taking courses from The National Institute for Genealogical Studies will do so for personal enjoyment or to enhance their genealogical knowledge. For these students, earning course credits may not be important.
For students earning a Certificate in Genealogical Studies, course credits are required.
Each course is worth a specific number of credits, typically one credit per course. To receive a credit for a course you must meet the following requirements:
- Be enrolled in the course.
- Submit assignments and exams posted in the course materials.
- Submit the final exam and assignments by the due date.
- Receive a grade of no less than a D on the final exam and assignments.
- Within six weeks of the class end date, your grade and credits will appear in your student Briefcase. Click My Briefcase to access your grades and credits for all the course you have taken.
- If you would like a paper confirmation of your grades and credits, please request this after the course end date. A $5.00 fee is charged for all hard copy transcripts. Payment may be made by cheque, PayPal or credit card.
