Earn credit for Japanese language immersion.
Earn academic credit for your learning at KCP. Academic credit from your home school may be available directly from KCP by means of a KCP grade report. You may also apply through one of our sponsor universities. Since retroactive credit is not available, be sure to check with your home school before you enroll in the program.
You can earn one year or more of language credit each term (either semester or quarter). If through a sponsor, KCP courses appear on your sponsor university transcript.

KCP Grade Report
KCP International uses the following information to report your grades to the sponsor and affiliate universities. It is up to your home university to decide how these credits will be labeled, evaluated, or count towards your major or minor. To order a KCP grade report, click here.
In the first week of class, you choose from three grading options: Grade (four-point scale), Pass/Fail, or Audit. Students who choose the Audit option participate fully in the course but do not earn academic credit.

School of Record
In some cases, your school may accept a KCP Grade Report as sufficient information to grant credit for you without your enrolling through a sponsor university. To order a KCP grade report, click here.
Be sure to check with your home school, to verify that a KCP grade report will be acceptable as transfer credit. You may also apply through one of our sponsor universities: Western Washington University, the University of Idaho, or Lincoln University/CCIS.
