Academic Credit

Earn credit for Japanese language immersion.

Lincoln University has approved for academic credit courses taught at KCP International Japanese Language School. You can earn one year or more of language credit (either semester or quarter) each KCP semester term. Courses appear on a Lincoln University transcript about 30 days after you have completed the term.

KCP courses have been approved for credit by this university but it is up to each student to determine transferability of credit by your home school before you attend the program.

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.

Summer Classes

Lincoln University has approved for academic credit all of the summer courses taught at KCP International Japanese Language School. Courses appear on a Lincoln University transcript about 30 days after you have completed the term.

Summer Term—12 language credits, 3 culture credits.

Summer Short-Term—10 language credits.

KCP courses have been approved for credit by Lincoln University, but it is up to each student to determine transferability of credit by their home school before attending the program.

Please note: Transfer of academic credit from a KCP grade report, or from a school of record (sponsor school) transcript, has been successful in most cases. However, every school has its own policy and makes the final decision on credit transfer. Students are encouraged to consult their home school’s study abroad or academic advisor about transferability of credit earned from their study at KCP.
