Transcripted College credit for PLTW courses
University Of New Haven Tagliatela College of Engineering
Secondary school students from any PLTW-certified school may apply for UNH college credit for each eligible PLTW course: IED, 2 credits; DE, 3 credits; POE, 3 credits; and EDD, 2 credits. Students must earn at least an 80% average in the course and an average of 70% or greater on Part A and C combined. The decision to apply for college credit can be made after the exam has been taken and scored.
The UNH college credit grade is based on the raw combined scores of Part A and Part C of the final exam and not on the course grade. Therefore, the grade a student receives in the high school couse may differ from the college credit grade. If a student subsequently attends UNH, the college credit grade would be counted towards his/her overall grade point average. If a student attemds another university, the course credits may be transferred without the letter grade.
The cost of tuition will be $200 per course. UNH engineering programs evaluate the acceptability of these credits similar to evaluating other transfer credits. Students must meet the college enrollment requirements for UNH majors.
A student who successfully takes a course in the current academic year must take the exam at the end of the course and register for college credit before December of year of completion.
