Arts & Sciences and M.I.T. offer courses for both graduate and undergraduate credit.  Undergraduate level courses will not be posted on your HSPH transcript.

The Business School grades do not convert into ordinal grades and therefore cannot be calculated into the G.P.A., however, they will count toward HSPH ordinal credit requirements.
