Courses taught through the CEA Virtual Study Center have been designed in conjunction with, and approved by, the University of New Haven (UNH). In addition, faculty appointments have been approved by UNH. After the successful completion of a session at the CEA Virtual Study Center, you will receive credit for your work from UNH. Located in Connecticut, the University of New Haven is a student-focused, comprehensive university that’s fully accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). The agreement between CEA and UNH follows the highest standards of good practice in education abroad and satisfies the rigorous requirements of the University's institutional accreditor, making credits earned through CEA’s Virtual Study Center easily transferable to US-accredited institutions. Learn more about UNH's service as the School of Record for CEA.


Faculty at the CEA Virtual Study Center will evaluate student work and progress throughout the academic session. The following grading system is in use at CEA’s Virtual Study Center:

CEA Grading Scale (Effective Spring 2017)

Letter Grade

Numerical Grade Low Range

Numerical Grade High Range

Percentage Range

Quality Points




97.0 - 100%





94.0 - 96.9%





90.0 – 93.9%





87.0 – 89.9%





84.0 – 86.9%





80.0 – 83.9%





77.0 – 79.9%





74.0 – 76.9%





70.0- 73.9%





60.0 – 69.9%





0 - 59.9%













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 ratio (QPR).
