Credit Transfer System of Tribhuvan University

Following the endorsement of the TU senate in 2015, Tribhuvan University first introduced the credit transfer system in 2018. With the implementation, Nepalese and international students in Tribhuvan University can continue their studies abroad and vice versa. 

Credit Transfer is a system that assures a smooth movement of students across higher education institutions in the country and abroad. Students who have completed 50 or fewer credit hours in foreign universities can apply for credit transfer at Tribhuvan University. Likewise, at least 50 percent of the subjects of the transferred course should match with the course of the university. Students seeking credit transfer will not be allowed to change their core or major subjects.

If you wish to transfer credit, these are some of the things that you need to know:

  1. Students willing to transfer credit from an accredited university/college or recognized by TU have to apply at concerned faculty or institute with paying a certain amount for each credit to be transferred.
  2. Students are eligible to transfer their credit of a cumulative total of 15-20 credit hours from an accredited university/college.
  3. Concerned faculty or institute will review all previous university/college level transcripts to determine what credits may be eligible to transfer.
  4. The dean’s office will review every course taken by a student to another university/college.
  5. The student should earn at least 50% of credit hours in the program to be eligible for credit transfer.
  6. The student must have secured at least a 'B' grade in all the courses.
  7. A student who has partially completed the master's program and would like to discontinue studies shall also be allowed to withdraw from the program. In such cases, a certificate specifying the student's credit in the program shall be provided.
