Credit units transferred to EAC are recorded, but quality points and grades from other institutions are omitted and will not be included in the GPA and CGPA calculations.

The maximum credit hours that may be transferred from other institutions are:

  • 20 credit hours for undergraduate studies (UGS) (2 semester courses) and
  • Foundation courses exemption for graduate studies (GS)

If a student presents more than the maximum amount of allowed credit hours, the academic commission decides which courses to accept for transfer and which to drop, considering factors like: grades earned, importance of the course (accepting  ̳less‘ important courses), time duration lapsed since taking the course, etc.

The transferred credit hours (courses) must be above a minimum grade of “C” for UGS.

Students who seek to earn an additional degree and wish to use part of their credit units received earlier are treated in the same way as students transferring credit units from other schools.
