Application

Transfer credit is applied when the credits and grades earned from previous institutions are allowed to be applied in the course of study at CAU for general-transfer students, transfer students with a bachelor's degree, military commission transfer students, transfer students who are Korean residents abroad seeking to study in Korea, transfer students who are children of diplomatic officials, and international transfer students.

Guidelines for general Transfer

Transferring Credit
  • General-transfer students will be given credits for subjects that are identical or parallel to the CAU subjects of the department (faculty) within the unit requirement for sophomores. Those who have transferred to another college/university before transferring to CAU will have to go through the transfer credit evaluation for the subjects they took from all the other colleges/universities they attended.
    Then they will be given credits within the unit requirement for sophomores based on the curriculum chart of their CAU department (faculty).
  • Credits will be transferred only if the subjects are identical or similar to those offered at CAU.
  • Transferable grades and credit hours
    Grades: Grades earned from previous colleges/universities will be reflected on the student’s record.
    Transferred credit hours will be adjusted and converted according to the CAU curriculum chart.
  • When the credit hours of a subject from a previous college/university are less than ⅔ of CAU’s credit hours, the subject will not be credited.
