Admission Requirements For Graduate Programs in the International College

Graduate Students should contact the individual departments or International Admissions for entrance requirements. For information on applying, click here or contact the Admissions Office (International programs) located on the ground floor (Room PC101) of Pentecost Building.

Credit Transfer

Students must complete a credit transfer request form at the Office of the Registrar. There is a fee of 500 Thai Baht, payable to the Finance Office. The submission of the transfer request form and payment of the fee must be completed before the process can begin. Once all the required paperwork is submitted, the form will be forwarded to the Office of Academic Affairs. Academic Affairs will then forward the request to the appropriate department(s) for verification of each individual course. All documents submitted for review, e.g., transcripts, course descriptions, syllabi, etc., MUST BE IN ENGLISH.

This process may take several months, depending upon how many credits the student is requesting to be verified and how many departments are involved. Students attempting to determine how many credits they will be able to transfer PRIOR to enrolling may experience an even longer period of processing. There may be additional documents required for review and students who are not already on campus (i.e., not yet enrolled) may find this process particularly cumbersome and time-consuming.
