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 confirmed your attendance to the University via the Admitted Student Checklist and your official transcripts have been received, your previous university-level courses will be fully evaluated for transfer credit eligibility. 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 core curriculum requirements, requirements in your major, or free elective credit.
Very often your transfer credit may fulfill AUP core curriculum requirements. Core curriculum requirements include courses in four subject areas: math and science, humanities, social sciences and languages. Core curriculum courses are organized in four categories: Integrative Inquiry, Critical Inquiry and Expression, Quantitative and Experimental Reasoning and Expression Française.
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.
