Transfer Credit

Guidelines for transfer credits

Within the curriculum of the degree programs, studies completed at other schools may be used for credit if they meet the following requirements:

  • studies must be taught on the same academic level and have similar prerequisites to (ATS) accredited schools,
  • grade may not be lower than C according to the grade scale of CIU,
  • studies must be comparable in terms of time (150 hrs for 3 credits)
  • course content must relate to the course of study at CIU-Korntal, and
  • courses and grades must be documented with an official Transcript.

CIU-Korntal determines which courses will be accepted for credit. Please see the program specific part of the student handbook for limits on transfer credit for the various degrees.

If the study credits are not classified according to the North American system, they may have to be converted (e.g. from British modules to American credits).

Studies at non-accredited schools will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and are usually not accepted fully.
