Credit Transfers and Advanced Placement

Non-ECMIT students with an associate degree from other recognized institutions or with an evidence of advanced course works, can be considered for advanced placement and credit transfers. Such students will submit official transcripts, course outlines and credit transfer request-form indicating the courses for credit transfers. The Admissions office will process the request and supporting documents and forward the file to the College Credit Transfer Committee. This committee will assess and evaluate each case and will make recommendation to the Program director or the Head of Academic Affairs. After the approval of these officers, the files shall be returned to the Admission Officer who will inform the students in writing. Thereafter, the files are sent to the Registrar for record and implementation. Up to 61 credits for transfer shall be allowed.

Access Route for UAE Secondary School Students not meeting the Admission Criteria through ECMIT Foundation Program

The two semester long Foundation program provides an access route to national students who wish to progress into non-federal Higher Education or post-secondary Vocational Training Institutions but do not have appropriate credentials (students with scores below 60% on the UAE Higher Secondary exams) of an approved High School Certificate. Foundation Program prepares students for success in these endeavors. The Program involves basic studies in five areas: English, Mathematics, Arabic, Information Technology and Study Skills. For successful completion of this Program, a student is required to obtain a Pass (60%) in each of the subjects mentioned, and a final Completion Certificate is awarded to students who successfully complete and pass all these requirements.

After obtaining a Foundation Program Certificate from ECMIT, students are prepared to pursue higher education at ECMIT and at other MOHESR accredited institutions of higher education in the UAE. However, students who may like to seek admission to ECMIT’S degree programs must take TOEFL Examination in which the minimum passing score must be 500. There is no need to sit for the mathematics entrance test.
