HOW DO I TRANSFER ACADEMIC CREDIT FROM PREVIOUS EDUCATION? 

If you have previous theological, non-theological or even practical experience that matches a study course in your curriculum, it is possible to apply for the formal recognition of the knowledge and skills attained in prior education or professional activity towards the fulfillment of a study course on offer at the Academy.

In order to do this, you must either

  1. indicate this in the interview following your Online Application;

  2. inform us of your wish to do so by sending an email to info@lut.edu.lv, with diploma+grade transcript* attached per each attained education from which you wish to transfer over Academic credit.  

You will also be required to pay a fee of 50 EUR per each diploma+grade transcript in order to have it officially recognized for enabling the transfer of Academic Credit. This will be asked upon a successful first evaluation of the potential for Academic Credit transfer towards study programs (courses) on offer at the Academy.

*Note that you may be required at some point to show the original diploma + grade transcript upon request.
