SMU Distance Education allows Credit Transfer from other universities

This is great news for students who wish to enroll for SMU Distance Education courses. If you are studying in a different university, you can continue the remaining course after transferring your credits to SMU.

What is Credit Transfer System?

Sikkim Manipal University Distance Education (SMU-DE) has announced the introduction of credit transfer from UGC recognized universities to Sikkim Manipal University. The condition is that the title and duration of the program will remain the same. Say a students is enrolled in BBA at any University, after the first year, he/she may seek a credit transfer and gain direct entry into the third semester of the same program with SMU-DE. So if you are not happy with your current institution, make the shift you SMU.


Save Time

The system has built-in features that help students to further save time while looking to pursue MBA programs post their graduation. For instance, it has a provision for final year students of B Tech or BE programs to sit for the first and second semester MBA examinations as soon as they complete their graduation. This gives the students a nine-month advantage over others following a similar progression into an MBA program with other universities.

There are special entry provisions for those students pursing diploma course in allied health sciences. 10th or 12th pass outs pursing diplomas through institutes recognized by the State Paramedical Board can gain direct entry into the third semester of B.Sc. programs in Medical Records and Health Information or Radiography, Radio Diagnosis and Imaging technology or Medical Laboratory Technology. What’s more, there are also exit options available for students pursuing PGDBT into masters programs in Biotechnology at SMU-DE.

We hope students will make full use of these opportunities to enhance their education.
