Transfer Students

Credits transferred from institutions of higher education that are recognized by the Lebanese Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEHE) are accepted provided that the Department and Faculty concerned ensure that the credits accepted are applicable to the corresponding degree program. The accepted credit, however, does not count toward the student’s GPA at NDU. The criteria established by NDU regarding this policy are made available to students through the University website and Catalog.


Depending on the Faculty, a transfer student is required to complete at least 50% of the degree requirements at NDU in order to be eligible for a degree, while the remainder of the credits that are taken at other institutions of higher education can be transferred if they satisfy the criteria of the Department and Faculty concerned.


Exceptionally, transfer students who want to join the Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Architecture programs can receive credit for NDU courses listed under the Liberal Arts Curriculum (LAC), core requirements, and free elective categories of the NDU Contract Sheet. A transfer candidate with a Bachelor of Engineering degree is required to complete a minimum of 45 credits at NDU and a minimum of 60 credits for those without a Bachelor of Engineering degree.


Transfer students from Engineering, Sciences, and Architecture majors at recognized universities are accepted provided they have completed a minimum of 12 credits.
