After the successful completion of a session at the CEA Sydney Center–Extension, students will receive credit for their work from UNH. Additionally, UNH ensures standards for the academic facility meet the benchmarks established by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), formerly known as the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC), which approves the School of Record agreement.  

The University of New Haven oversees the entire approval process surrounding CEA Study Center–Extensions, which includes: faculty appointments, curriculum design, course approvals, course credit assignments, quality assurance, student assessment, and academic accommodation.

Completion of a course is defined as a receipt of a letter grade (A+ to F) as opposed to Withdrawal or Incomplete. 

In order to determine a quality point ratio, each letter grade from a completed course is assigned a quality point value. The quality point value for each grade earned during a semester is multiplied by the number of semester hours assigned to that course. The sum of these points is the total number of quality points earned during the semester. It is divided by the number of semester hours completed to obtain the quality point ration (QPR).
