    • 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).
