Credit Transfer

Attention: Credit transfer of exams completed before admission must be applied for by the end of the 2nd semester at the latest. 

After this period, an application is not allowed anymore. This regulation does not apply to examinations you take during your studies at WU (e.g. during your Semester Abroad) and not to Self-Service Credit Transfer.

Please note, that switching to a newer version of your curriculum (e.g. WiSo 19 to WiSo 23), the deadline does NOT start again.

WiSo 23: Please note that you must choose a major within the degree program. It is advisable to transfer examinations taken before admission for the Introductory and Orientation Phase and the Common Body of Knowledge at the beginning of your studies.

You should not apply for examinations for the major until the end of the second semester, when you are sure which major you will complete.

If you are planning a semester abroad or to take social skills courses, keep the free electives free for these credit transfers.

The team of Study Regulations & Credit Transfer (advice on recognition issues, individual studies, merit and need-based scholarship grants) will be available to you personally in the Study Service Center on Monday, 09:00 am - 12:00 pm.

Please send your applications for credit transfer here.

Applications will only be accepted on working days. This means that applications sent on weekends or public holidays are considered to have been submitted on the following working day and the decision period does not begin to run until this day.

If you have any questions, please contact

If you wish an individual consultation for special requests, please make an appointment here.
