Information on Credit Transfer

Please check the academic calendar for current deadlines.

The (operational) schedule of the Credit Transfer Committees can be found in the 4th attachment of the Academic and Examination Regulation of the University of Szeged.

If you have previously completed a course/courses elsewhere, it/they can reduce your credits required for your current study programme.


Important information:

  1. You should submit your credit transfer request before the semester of the requested course/courses starts. You should register the course/courses in Neptun only if your credit transfer request has been denied. Since there is a chance of rejection, you should get on with the application procedure as soon as possible at the beginning of your studies.

  2. The credit and grade awarded via credit transfer is not calculated in the average of grades at the end of the semester, except for the credits earned in the ERASMUS (**) programme.

  3. When there is a lecture-practice combination then you should apply for a transfer only for the part that requires credits to be obtained.

  4. Credit transfer cannot be requested for the Thesis Work course.

  5. Generally, the fulfilments of the previous study programme cannot be accepted in the next study programme, since the whole previous study programme with the diploma is the requirement for the next study programme and it has already been taken into consideration.

Requests can only be submitted electronically in the MODULO to the Interfaculty forms / Linked credit transfer form / Regular Credit transfer form.

Courses that have not been completed at the University of Szeged can be chosen only from the drop-down menu, so in order to have them listed in the menu, you must get the previous institution of your studies registered in Neptun at the very beginning by presenting the original documents (e.g.: grade book, credit certificate) at the Students’ Office.


The required documents of your previous studies that have been completed elsewhere must be in the following digital formats: jpeg, gif, pdf (but not zip, arj, doc):

  1. The copy/picture (or screen shot) of the relevant page(s) of the grade book, or the copy/picture of the registry sheet certified by the Students’ Office, or the copy/picture of the relevant page(s) of the credit certificate, which includes the requested course/courses marked specifically, and certified by the Students’ Office

  2. Certified course description or detailed list of topics covered by the course

In case you have studied at the University of Szeged beforehand, you must attach certified course description or detailed list of topics covered by the course/courses if:

  1. You have completed your studies 5 years prior to submission date.

  2. Your previous studies have not been completed at the Faculty of Science and Informatics but at some other Faculties of the University of Szeged.


The deadlines for submission are generally before the upcoming course registration period, the exact dates are included in the Academic Calendar of the University


Submission period

Students concerned

Autumn semester, mid November

Spring semester, mid April

Every student, the decision is made before the autumn course registration period is opened

the last two weeks of August

Only students who come from another university, have changed their study programmes or are newly admitted. The decision is made before the end of the autumn course registration period. (*)


The requests can be submitted during the passive semester as well.


For students taking part in English programmes, we advise to submit the Regular Credit Transfer form. (e.g.: EUGLOH courses).


(*) LINKED CREDIT TRANSFER

The linked credit transfer form provides a faster administration procedure for those students who would like their credits formerly obtained at the University of Szeged to be acknowledged, because they have changed their study programmes, with their new admission they returned to their same former study programme. With this form, the credit transfer can be submitted for all courses; on one form maximum 80 courses can be selected. If you would like one course to be acknowledged, only one formerly completed course can be selected for that. Your only task is to match the courses and finalize them (i.e., documents attachment is not even possible in this case).

Besides the linked credit transfer form you can submit regular credit transfer form as well.


(**) Students taking part in ERASMUS programme

The above mentioned deadlines do not apply to the requests submitted in the frame of the ERASMUS programme. These requests can be submitted any time to the Students’ Office of the Faculty of Science and Informatics, University of Szeged during its reception hours on a paper form together with the Learning Agreement, Transcript of Records. The ERASMUS request serves to acknowledge completed credits during academic studies as guest student at another university.


The form for ERASMUS credit acknowledgement can be downloaded here.
