    Hi, I'm a foreign student and I've earned some credits without letter grades. Long story short, I emailed NIES and asked if they're acceptable and they refused to say because its part of the evaluation.

    So there's a credit bank system in my country that allows people to earn college credits. The conventional way of doing that is taking online courses that is worth three credits and a letter grade, but takes four months.
    But people can earn credits through alternative means, and it will show up on the transcript but without a letter grade. It's either a)Passing a one-time exam on that subject or b)Acquiring a certificate(usually easy ones) that the System pre-approved. In my case it's the latter. I've earned 14 credits via certificate and it'd look something like this on my transcript:
    2019/Certified Accounting Manager/-(No letter grade)/14 credits

    So the question is, would NIES accept those 14 credits? Is taking online courses and spending time a must or are alternative means okay? Please help!

    Based on the information you provided it sounds like you have no alternatives but to send in whatever you have and see what they say. If they have questions I am sure they will ask. If they reject it then you will have to take the amount of credits they require.
    The same applies to your other thread about sealed envelopes. If you have no other alternatives then just send in what you are able. Nothing else you can do. You are at their mercy.

    Thanks! I really needed to find similar precedents before I did anything tho. The system is sort of similar to CLEP or DSST and I know in the US they work but I don't if it's the same for NIES.
    If they decide against the fourteen credits I'd end up being set back 4+months and I really can't afford that.. But I do agree that the best thing I could do is send in everything and see. 🙂
