Transcript of Records after the Exchange

When the exchange/double degree student has completed all the courses as required and the teachers have given all the grades after the exchange period has ended, the International Services will issue a Transcript of Records for all the exchange and double degree students automatically and free of charge. The Transcript of Records will be sent to the student’s home institution. Transcript of Records are sent twice a year:

  • for spring semester/the whole academic year within 5 weeks after all the grades have been given or by the end of September at the latest
  • for autumn semester within 5 weeks after all the grades have been given or by the end of February at the latest

Based on the Transcript of Records, the student can apply for credit transfer for the studies completed at JAMK in their home institution.

The final Transcript of Records will be made based on the Learning Agreement and possible Changes to the original Learning Agreement i.e. courses chosen in the study plans will also be in the Transcript of Records. The grading scale (see Courses and Assessment) will also be shown in the Transcript of Records.
