All program seminars and most other courses are the equivalent of a full-semester course at Vassar or Wesleyan. Grades from French university courses will be translated into American equivalents by the program. The program will provide transcripts of grades and evaluations to the registrar at the student’s home institution. Students who wish courses to be counted as part of the requirements for their major should consult with their major advisor before leaving for France.
