Credit transfers

Who can apply for a credit transfer?

In order to be entitled to apply for  a credit transfer, you must be admitted to and pursue studies at Linnaeus University.

For what can I be granted a credit transfer?

As a student, you are entitled to credit transfers of completed studies for which you have received the grade pass at a Swedish higher education institution or at a higher education institution abroad. You may also be granted a credit transfer for knowledge and skills acquired through vocational experience.

What should I do if I want to have a credit transfer for a programme?

You can apply for a credit transfer only once you have started your studies at Linnaeus University; that is to say, once you have received your admission notification, accepted your place and registered. Applications for credit transfer are filled-in using this form. What is to be included in the application and what documents are to be attached is stated in the form.

Where do I hand in my application for a credit transfer?

Your application should be sent to tillgodo@lnu.se alternatively to Registrator, Linnéuniversitetet, 351 95 Växjö. Mark the envelope "Credit transfer".

How is my application handled and when do I get the decision?

Your application will be assessed by the faculty/department in question. Normally, the turnaround time is not more than one month. When a decision has been made, a copy of the decision will be sent to you by email or mail.

How are granted credit transfers documented?

All granted credit transfers are registered in Ladok. In some cases, a credit transfer is not registered until the remaining parts of a course/sub-course have been completed.

Can I appeal a decision about credit transfer?

In case your application for a credit transfer is rejected, you can appeal the decision to The Higher Education Appeals Board. Information on how to do this will be provided in connection to the decision.

More information concerning credit transfers and how these are handled at Linnaeus University can be found in the local regulations.
