Credit & Evaluation

Credit Transfer

Most courses at SNU ISP award students with SNU academic credits upon completion of the course. Most universities allow credit transfer, However, students must check with their department or academic adviser before registering at SNU ISP and it is strongly recommended that you receive pre-approval in advance, as credit transfer is highly dependent on which course you take at SNU ISP and how it fits into your degree program. Also, universities in certain countries (e.g. United Kingdom) may not allow credit transfer from outside institutions.


SNU ISP sends out one copy of transcript via express post to the mailing address designated by each student after one month from the completion of the program. Please note that transcripts for current year's SNU ISP students are not available before this time. Current year's SNU ISP students will be asked to designate the recipient and via email, so students should make sure they have provided the correct email address at some point during the program.

Additional Transcripts

Former SNU ISP students can request additional transcripts by contacting the SNU Office of Academic Affairs directly. A moderate fee will be charged.

Academic Policy


As SNU ISP is an intensive 6 week program, class attendance takes a very important part in evaluation for the course. Students who are absent without prior notice or excuse for more than three classes can be given an "F" grade for the course. Absence for more than three classes is discouraged, even if prior notice was given. If there are extenuating circumstances that prevent you from attending classes, you must inform the professor prior to class. In case of health problems, students should inform the professor as early as possible and later submit a doctor's note to the professor. Students facing difficulties in acquiring documents validating the reason for absence (due to language barrier, etc.) should contact SNU ISP staff immediately for assistance.


SNU ISP has a ZERO tolerance policy for plagiarism. Plagiarism is a grave academic offence. A first offence will result in a mark of zero on the assignment; a second offence will result in failure of the course.
