Before taking a course elsewhere, students may make reference to the Credit Transfer Course Equivalence Database for information on the transfer credits approved in the past. For students who plan to take courses elsewhere which have never been approved before, they may submit an assessment request before the actual study.
Students who wish to apply for assessment for new course mappings should follow the procedure below:
1. Consult the EVMT Program Office for advice on the study plan.
2. Submit the following documents to ARR, Academic Registry:
Students can only seek assessment for the courses they plan to study, normally not more than 6 to 8 courses (or 18 credits) for each term of study at each institution. Assessment requests with incomplete information or missing supporting documents will NOT be processed.
The processing time for an assessment is at least one month. Students are advised to submit the assessment well before the class enrollment deadline of the host institution. Students will be informed of the results by email and they may then check the details from the Credit Transfer Course Equivalence Database.
This is only an assessment of course equivalence and no transfer credit is granted yet. Upon completion of the elsewhere study, students who would like to apply for credit transfer are required to complete the Application Procedure described below.
