To facilitate students in selecting courses at the exchange institution, students may apply for provisional assessment of credit transfer into common core or designated general education courses before they leave HKUST for the exchange.
It is not a final approval of credit transfer. Students may choose not to apply for a provisional assessment. It is not a required step for applying for credit transfer. This assessment is not applicable to students who have returned from the exchange.
The provisional assessment merely indicates, based on documents submitted at application, whether the course to be taken outside HKUST may be counted towards a common core area or a school-based GE course.
The application form, together with course description and class schedule information, should be submitted to the major department for endorsement before submitting it to the UCE Team for an assessment.
