Below is a credit chart that shows conversion of credit hours from quarter to semester hours.  Please note that currently only 3 of the NEXus member schools operate on the quarter system; Loma Linda University (LLU), Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) and University of California San Francisco (UCSF).  If you have concerns about how a course may transfer/transcript back to your home school, contact your Graduate School or Registrar's Office for further clarification.
