Transfer credits

Students who have credits from other higher education establishments may be able to transfer credit towards their degree. In order to be eligible, the credits must be relevant to the Liberal Arts curriculum. In addition, only courses with a grade B (82%) or above will be considered. A maximum of 80 credits (2 years of study) can be accepted.

It is also possible to receive credit for relevant I.B. (at grade 5+) and A.P. (4+) classes.

Transfer credits will typically result in students being exempted from relevant classes at TAU.


Language requirement

Students who attended a school in which the language of instruction was not English are required to submit scores of an English proficiency exam – TOEFL (minimum 79) or IELTS (minimum 6.5).

For Liberal Arts admission, the ETS TOEFL IBT HOME EDITION online exam has been approved.

For 2022 Dual BA admission, Duolingo English tests are also acceptable.
