Important Information
  1. The College reserves the right to disapprove credit transfer for courses which are not deemed to be equivalent to the courses offered by the College (e.g. less than 70% in similarity) and for courses with grades below the equivalence of grade C in the College’s grading system.
  2. Credits earned from prior learning should remain valid at the time when the student applies for course exemption/credit transfer. The validity period of credits earned and considered for credit transfer is 8 years from the year of attainment.
  3. Under normal circumstances, the maximum limit for credit transfer and course exemption is 50% of the total credits required by the programme. For credit transfer granted with the sending qualifications awarded by the College, the ceiling is set at 65% of the total credit requirement for the exit award. The limit does not include credit transfer associated with approved student exchange programmes.
  4. Application for credit transfer/ course exemption will NOT be allowed if students have already registered and completed the course at the College, regardless of the result.
  5. The Programme Leader or his/her delegate (who may seek advice from the Course Instructor if deemed appropriate) should assess the application and make recommendation to the respective School Dean for approval. The student may be required to take an assessment for the consideration of credit transfer.
  6. If the application for credit transfer is approved, the student is considered to have completed the course(s) concerned and granted the equivalent credits. If the application for course exemption is approved, the student should take other course(s) to make up for the total number of credits required for the exit award. Credit transfer and course exemption are recorded without inclusion in grade point average calculation.
