    • No, there is no need for course registration in the first Quad. You will take three academic core courses which are mandatory. You select and register for your first elective at the end of the first Quad.

       

    • You will have around 15 contact hours per week during a Quad.

    • At the end of the first year you will have to declare your Major.

    • Credit transfer requests from students are not taken into consideration until they are a student at EUC. No guarantees are thus given before application.

      Exemptions from EUC skills courses usually have the most chance of being approved based on completed skills courses elsewhere. However, nothing specific can be said without evaluation of the course content during the request procedure.

      In the request procedure, we will check whether courses could be considered for EUC course exemptions (there should be enough overlap). If that is not the case, then courses could be considered for the 30EC that can be filled with off-campus courses (in that case there may not be significant overlap with EUC courses).
