In a university transcript, "Course Unit" typically refers to the credit hours assigned to a course. Credit hours represent the amount of time a student spends in class per week throughout the semester. In most universities, one credit hour is equivalent to one hour of classroom instruction and two to three hours of outside work each week for one semester.
Meanwhile, "Course Status" typically refers to the outcome or the current status of a course. It could indicate whether the student passed or failed the course, withdrew from it, or received an incomplete grade, among others. The exact terminology used for course status may vary from institution to institution, but some common examples include "completed," "in progress," "withdrawn," "audit," and "failed." The course status section of a transcript helps to provide a summary of a student's academic progress and achievement.
