Undergraduate Degree Programs 

  1. ADUC has a committee that includes a staff of the Office of Admission and Registration and subject matter specialists in making decisions regarding transfer admissions, transfer of credit, and advanced standing; records of all decisions and related documents are maintained.
  2. ADUC ensures that only students transferring from UAE institutions recorded in the National Register of Licensed HEIs, or other organizations in the UAE approved by the CAA, or recognized institutions of higher learning located outside the UAE, are eligible for transfer admission
  3. Requires all entering transfer students must present valid certification (EmSAT, TOEFL, IELTS, or other certification approved by CAA) demonstrating the required language competency scores for full admission
  4. Requires students transferring from other institutions into a program in the same field of study are in good academic standing (for undergraduates, a minimum CGPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent), based on the teaching, learning, and assessment system employed in the organization at which they initially enrolled, demonstrated by certified transcripts or other evidence
  5. Permits external or internal students who are not in good academic standing to transfer only to a program in a field distinctly different from the one from which the student is transferring
  6. Transfers undergraduate program credits only for courses relevant to the receiving degree that provide equivalent learning outcomes and in which the student earned a grade of C (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better
  7. The transferred courses are credited hours, but no grade points are assigned and, therefore, not considered in the student’s CGPA calculation
  8. Requires the submission of official transcripts showing all post-secondary work attempted at all institutions attended
