Quarter/Semester Units Conversion

If you're transferring from a College/University with a Quarter system you must convert your grades to the Semester system equivalence.

Quarter Units X .667= Semester Units

  • Quarter units are converted to semester units by multiplying the quarter units by .667. The resulting figure is not rounded. Only the first two digits to the right of the decimal point are used.
    Example:
    25 quarter units x .667
    = 16.675 semester units
    = 16.67 semester units
    NOT 16.68 or 17.0

  • The same formula and rules are used to convert quarter grade points to semester grade points.


  • Semester units are converted to quarter units by multiplying quarter units by 1.5. The resulting figure is not rounded. Only the first two digits to the right of the decimal point are used.
    Example:
    25 semester units x 1.5
    = 37.50 quarter units
    NOT 38.0
