Credit transfers allow you to bring credits earned at another accredited institution with you to The American University of Paris. High school or secondary school students can earn advanced standing credits for their diplomas or advanced coursework.
Depending on your secondary school curriculum, you may qualify for up to 32 semester credits of advanced standing credit.
The University does not currently recognize any other secondary school examinations for advanced standing.
You may transfer up to 64 semester credits for successfully completed coursework where you earned a “C” or better from a previously attended university or college.
Once you have been admitted to the University and your official transcripts have been received, the Registrar’s Office will evaluate your eligibility for transfer credit. Occasionally you’ll be asked to provide additional information (such as a course description or syllabus) in order to determine transfer eligibility of a particular course.
At least 64 credits, including your final 16, must be completed in residency at AUP. Transfer credits can fulfill either general education requirements, requirements in your major, or free elective credit.
As a transfer student, you must complete at least fifty% of your upper-level major requirements at AUP. You may apply up to eight transfer credits toward a minor.
Should you have any questions about your transfer credits or need help to determine your eligibility, don’t hesitate to contact the Admissions Office.
