German Abitur

German Abitur credit is well-established and internationally recognized. The seven-year Gymnasium program leads to German Abitur credit that provides documentation of achievement that may qualify a student for advanced standing. Credit is awarded for German Abitur coursework if certain requirements are met. Credit awarded by another college or university for German Abitur coursework is not transferable without proper documentation. Official German Abitur examination scores must be submitted to the office of admission. Transfer credit from all sources (including the German Abitur) may not exceed 90 quarter hours. A policy regarding completion of German Abitur testing after six years of study at a Gymnasium has not yet been established.
