Academic residencies are non-credit bearing when it comes to credits required for a student’s overall program or for financial aid eligibility. As of August 2013, all residencies are zero units/credits. For residencies completed before August 2013, your degree audit will still reflect the residency units/credits earned, but will show a 0.00 for all residencies after August 2013.

In the example above, the student completed his first two PhD residencies before the change in policy and the third PhD residency after the change. The degree audit will not be updated to remove the units/credits on the pre-August 2013 residencies, nor will units/credits be applied towards post-August 2013 residencies.

If you have questions about reading your degree audit or your program requirements, contact an academic advisor.
