Pre-commencement credit transfer

If you have previously been enrolled in a study programme you have not completed, it must be assessed whether you are eligible for what is called pre-commencement credit transfer. You have already marked in your application on www.optagelse.dk that you have previously passed courses, as you are obliged to do so.

The decision on pre-commencement credit transfer will be sent to your student email, and you must read your decision carefully. You can expect to get an answer around the start of the semester.

Do you have a non-completed study programme from DTU?

If you have previously passed programme elements (courses etc.) from a non-completed study programme at DTU, you do not need to apply for pre-commencement credit transfer yourself. DTU will automatically make a pre-commencement credit transfer assessment, as we already have access to your previous results and course descriptions.

Do you have a non-completed study programme from another educational institution?

If you have previously passed programme elements (courses etc.) from a non-completed study programme at another educational institution, you must remember to apply for a pre-commencement credit transfer, once you have been admitted and have accepted your place on the study programme.

You apply for pre-commencement credit transfer using DTU’s credit transfer system. To access the system, you must have a valid DTU username and password.
