All courses taken with NYU faculty are automatically credited to the student's NYU degree and count towards their NYU GPA. This includes courses taught by NYU faculty during NUS Semesters 1 and 2, and any directed research/UROPs taken with NYU faculty. (Note that here and elsewhere “NYU faculty” includes global faculty.) Note that such courses must total a minimum of 20 credits for students to graduate with the NYU LL.M. As stated above, the remainder of the minimum 24 NYU credits required for the NYU LL.M. may be made up of NUS faculty-taught courses.
In order to finalize the NYU transcripts, students will be asked to select the NUS courses that will be applied towards their NYU degree. These courses taken with NUS faculty will appear with grades converted to NYU grades, but do not count towards the NYU GPA. To have these NUS courses included on a student's transcript, they will be asked, at the appropriate time, to select up to four NUS courses (not taught by NYU faculty).
Note that a 4 NUS credit course is, for present purposes, converted to 2.5 NYU credits. A student's total NYU credits should be 24 or higher, but cannot exceed 30 NYU credits. The following guide may be helpful:
