All students must achieve a minimum grade of C from Ritsumeikan University in order to be considered for transfer credit. The Faculty of Arts at the University of Alberta has pre-approved the courses offered in the Ritsumeikan University Summer Language Program for University of Alberta transfer credit in JAPAN 2XX (*6) or JAPAN 3XX (*6). Please note that these transfer credits are not guaranteed to satisfy the requirements of your degree. The Department of East Asian Studies, in particular, does not accept credits in JAPAN 2XX or 3XX as substitutes for JAPAN 201, 202, 301, or 302. You should first consult with an advisor in your department/faculty to ensure that the preapproved credit outlined here is applicable to your degree program. A Permission to Participate Form must be signed by your faculty prior to your participation in the program (please see “How to Apply” details). If you are a participant from another Canadian institution, consult with your university for credit transfer details.
