Transfer students are an important part of the culture of Effat University. You may apply as a transfer student if you have graduated high school and are currently or have been enrolled at another college/university.

Admission Requirements for Transfer
Transfer of Credits
Transfer credit evaluations are completed in the Office of the University Registrar for all admitted students. You must submit syllabi for all courses completed prior to enrolling at Effat University, for which you wish to receive transfer credit. Please submit your syllabi as separate PDF or Word attachments (one attachment) to admissions. If your syllabi do not fit in one email, you may send multiple emails. Please include your name and Hawiya or Iqama number in the body of each email.
Shortly after being notified of your admission as a transfer student, you will receive a tentative evaluation of your completed transfer credit. Once final grades are submitted you will receive your updated completed evaluation.
Effat University generally awards credit for courses completed with a grade of C or better at an accredited institution. You can use our transfer equivalency site as a guide to how classes taken at other colleges or universities may transfer to Effat University. The fact that a course appears in this list is no guarantee that the course will transfer in your individual case. Additionally, some courses may not appear on this list, but may be eligible for transfer. Effat University reserves the right to reevaluate and update its transfer policy at any time.
Final determination of transfer credit acceptance is ultimately made by the Admissions and Academic Standing Committee and University Council upon admission to Effat University. You must submit course syllabi and official transcripts of all completed coursework during the transfer of credit period as per the academic calendar and before a final determination can be made on credit transfer.
