In your official academic record, credit transfer includes all the credits obtained in previous official studies that have not led to obtaining an official qualification.
These transferred modules, materials or subjects are not calculated in the GPA (grade point average)
The transfer is not applied in the case of simultaneous studies, except if these studies have been abandoned.


Credit recognition occurs when the University of Valencia accepts the credits earned in official studies of this university or another university so that they can be counted towards other studies in order to obtain an official degree. Basic recognition guidelines:

  1. At least 36 credits for basic training subjects if the chosen degree belongs to the same branch of study.
  2. Other credits for basic education that belong to the chosen branch of study.
  3. All credits as long as there is a match between the competences and knowledge of the original subjects and the subjects in the chosen degree programme.
  4. Under no circumstances will there be credit recognition between undergraduate courses and Master’s degree courses. 

Credits earned in previous official plans of study will be calculated according to the adaptation of subjects from the old plan to the new plan.

Credit recognition may also apply to official non-university higher education studies, official higher vocational educational and in national and international mobility programmes.


Accredited work-related and professional experience as well as non-official university studies may be recognised if they do not collectively exceed 15% of the total number of credits in the degree programme. However, credit recognition from university-specific degrees, exceptionally, may exceed this percentage or, where applicable, receive total recognition if the corresponding university-specific degree has been phased out and has been substituted for an official degree. 
Furthermore, a maximum of 6 optional credits may be recognised for student participation in university cultural activities, sports, student representation, solidarity and cooperation. 



Procedures for transfer or recognition must be initiated by the student by submitting an application in the relevant faculty or school or following any of the procedures referred to in Article 38 of Law 30/92.


The dean or director, upon report from the Degree Committee (Comisión Académica del Título) shall resolve the matter within one month. If not, the request shall be deemed rejected. 


In order to study the applications and incorporate recognised credits in the academic record, established fees are applied by the Valencian government for each analysis.
