Credits Transfer Process
Students going for the Exchange Programs should send in their course outlines for the courses they are aiming to study at the host university, along with the IBA equivalent course details with the nominated focal person from each School.

An email with following details must be sent to IRC Team:
1. Course name
2. Equivalent course at IBA
3. Course outline
4. Transcript
5. Chairperson

The compiled list of courses along with the details will be forwarded to the relevant focal person of each school and then students will be informed to follow up with the focal person from each school. The focal person from each school would get the approval of the credit transfers from the Chairperson of the relevant courses/department.

In many cases, Pre-approvals are possible – however, many partner universities change their courses once the students reach there. Therefore, they should be asked to send in the course outlines within 2 weeks of them reaching there to streamline the process. 

The respective Focal Person from each school will follow up with the student for transferring the credit hours on the transcript and responsible for ensuring that students apply on the SFS to get credits transferred on their transcript. Once it is done, the focal person will update the status of approved courses along with checking the grades criteria and the transcript from the host university on SFS and also follow up with the Examinations Department for transferring the credit hours. Students need to constantly keep in touch with the focal person to get the credit hours transferred.
