Credits earned by examination at other colleges or universities in the last 10 years may be transferred, provided such credits meet the guidelines used by the Institute. The Registrar will evaluate college credits earned elsewhere with respect to graduation requirements at the Institute. Developmental classes, orientation classes, or classes in which students receive a "Pass" are not eligible for transfer credits. Courses transferred or waived are included in transcripts, but no grades or quality points are awarded.
Transfer credits may be accepted, subject to the following conditions and restrictions:
If a course is accepted for credit, it will be counted as a transfer credit. No grade points from such transferred courses will be calculated in the Institute’s grade point average. However, grades transferred for courses taken in residence at institutions with which the Institute has an articulation agreement, are exempt from the policy and will be recorded. Credit hours from another institution that are accepted towards the student's educational program must count as both attempted and completed hours. Courses transferred in may not be used to substitute improved grades for passing grades earned at the Institute.
DigiPen and SIT entered into collaboration in March 2010 to offer an admission pathway for graduates with related diplomas from the five local polytechnics, namely:
Students should refer to the SIT website at www.singaporetech.edu.sg for information on relevant diplomas.
Under this collaboration, students may transfer certain credits for courses that they have successfully completed at their respective polytechnics.
The Institute will inform these students of their respective course sequences after taking into consideration the approved transfer credits. Students will also be notified of any other necessary bridging courses and/or additional electives that they need to complete in order to meet the requirements to graduate with a degree from the Institute.
Any queries regarding course sequences for polytechnic graduates under the SIT collaboration should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
