Residencies have always been non-credit bearing when it comes to credits required for a student’s overall program or for financial aid eligibility. To help better reflect this, residencies will no longer carry units/credits. Instead, as of August 2013, all residencies are zero units/credits. For those who have taken residencies before August 2013, your degree audit will still reflect the residency units/credits earned on your first residencies, but will show a 0.00 for all residencies going forward.

In the example above, the student completed his first two residencies before the change in policy and the third residency after the change. The degree audit will not be updated to remove the units/credits on the old residencies, nor will units/credits be applied towards new residencies.
