Transfer between SQU colleges

General Transfer Criteria between Colleges:

  1. Students should complete the foundation program before being transferred.
  2. Transfer between majors takes place within the college itself.
  3. After all college transfer criteria are met, there will be a further ability test before acceptance in Physical Education, Art Education, and Music and Musical Science.
  4. Students should pass English level 6 or its equivalent if they plan to transfer to any English-medium and bilingual program.
  5. A student who wishes to transfer to a program should satisfy the FP courses that are pre-requisites for the degree courses of the program.
  6. Students must consider the remaining duration of study at SQU when applying for transfer and should not exceed the maximum allowable duration (refer to the academic regulations).
  7. Students are only permitted to select one transfer choice.
  8. Students are allowed to transfer once only.
  9. Approval for transfer depends on the number of available seats in the college. Students will not be transferred if seats are unavailable even if they have fulfilled all transfer requirements.

Important notes:

  1. After transfer, only credits that are equivalent to the student's new degree plan will be counted. Other credit hours may not be taken into account and that may lead to a delay in graduation of one or more semesters. Students should bear in mind that conflicts in their timetable may arise due to transfer and that they will be responsible for dealing with them.
  2. Transfer to the College of Medicine and Health Sciences is not allowed for scholarship students and staff children.
  3. A student who wishes to transfer to the College Medicine and Health Sciences (MD) and Biomedical Science, Nursing and College of Engineering can take PHYS2101 or PHYS2107 without repeating them.
