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.

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 using our form.

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 problems, please contact

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

PLEASE NOTE: Once you have been issued a credit transfer notification and no further legal remedies are available (because you have waived your right to appeal or the appeal period has expired), the transferred examinations can no longer be deleted from your transcript. Exchanging transferred exams for other, previously transferred exams, is also only possible under certain specific conditions.
