  • CREDIT TRANSFERS / TRANSFER STUDENTS

Transfer of US and ECTS credit hours from universities in the United States, Europe or elsewhere is done from accredited institutions. To be considered for admission and to have credits for prior academic work evaluated for transfer purposes, a candidate must submit the following documents in addition to the regular application:

  1. Official transcript(s) sent directly from the colleges/universities where the courses were taken
  2. Detailed syllabi and course descriptions from the colleges / universities for each course

Students will be considered for transfer to AUBiH, upon completion of at least one semester in good academic standing at an accredited college or university. Evaluation of transcripts, syllabi, and course descriptions is done by Evaluation Committee of the AUBiH Academic Department. AUBiH undergraduate students must complete minimum 120 US or 240 ECTS credits in order to obtain BS or BA degree. Transfer students are required to take at least 30 US or 60 ECTS credits within the AUBIH program before the BS/BA diploma can be awarded. Applications from visiting students are usually considered for a study on a full-time basis.
