Application to a higher subject semester -
Credit Transfer Report

If you have already completed relevant courses at a different university or in another course of study, you can apply for a higher subject semester. To do this, you need a credit transfer report.

Please be sure to take into account the regulations concerning the progress monitoring of your credit balance. The regulations as set forth in the General Academic and Examination Regulations as well as in the Academic and Examination Regulations of the specific degree programs. These regulations define the number of credits you need to have acquired at the end of every subject semester. If you fail to meet this requirements, you are in danger of irrevocably failing your degree - so make sure to get in contact with the departmental academic advising staff of your faculty or department before applying for a higher subject semester.

What is a credit transfer report?

The credit transfer report is proof that your future TUM school has approved placement in a higher upper-division semester. For information on how to obtain a credit transfer report, refer to the homepage of the respective school or college.

Important: The credit transfer report should not be confused with the official procedure for recognizing previously earned credits, which can only be initiated once you have actually enrolled.
