The process starting with the submission of the form to the final changes in Campus Management has now been fully digitized and includes the following steps:

A member of the department in which you seek credit signs the form to confirm that the content of the courses for which students earned credits at another institution can be considered equivalent to courses offered at the JFKI (“Testat”). Therefore, it is necessary to enclose additional documents such as transcripts or syllabi. Afterwards, all documents are signed by the Examination Committee, either in the person of Prof. Dr. Sebastian Jobs or Prof. Dr. Sönke Kunkel. Afterwards, all documents are forwarded to the Office of Examination and Auditing (Prüfungsbüro) at the Fachbereich Politik- und Sozialwissenschaften.

Please allow for up to four weeks upon the submission of your form(s) until the changes in Campus Management have been made.
