Credit transfer

The rules of Credit Accumulation and Transfer (CAT) are as follows:

  • Credit transfer applies to incomplete or complete qualifications no older than 5 years at the time of the initial registration with SACAP.
  • Credit transfer applications must be supported by appropriate university transcript(s) no older than 5 years with relevant module description information (i.e. content, credit value, NQF level).
  • Any and all credits of an incomplete qualification from SACAP or another institution may be recognised as meeting part (up to 50% maximum) of the requirements for the same or a different qualification at SACAP.
  • Up to 50% of the credits of a completed qualification from SACAP or another institution may be recognised as meeting part (up to 50% maximum) of the requirements for the same or a different qualification at SACAP.
  • Credit transfer is not applicable for the exit year of a qualification or for exit level qualifications in general.
  • In order to be considered, an CAT application must be submitted together with the application for admission, prior to the commencement of formal studies.
