Students wishing to obtain credit as a result of our evaluation should consult their own institutions in advance about the acceptability of the Summer School evaluation for credit purposes. The amount of credit awarded is at the discretion of individual institutions but a rough guide would suggest students completing a full 10 days of the ISSS (with a 70 hour workload and a essay) might earn four (4) to six (6) semester credit hours.
