Transferring process

In order to complete the transfer process, applicants must do the following steps:
  • complete the application form 
  • submit two official copies of your university or college transcripts (translated into English and notarized), as well as the course descriptions.
  • Transcripts will be taken into consideration when deciding which previous exams and credits earned can be recognized as valid and compatible with RIT Croatia programs. Transfer applications can be submitted at any time with applicants beginning their studies in the fall or spring semester.
  • submit course descriptions in English language
  • submit a motivational essay in English language (minimum 400 words, write in Word document)
  • have a short interview in English with one of the Enrollment Specialists in person or via Skype.
Applicants may apply for a transfer during their first year of studying or at higher year levels. Students may apply to transfer to RIT Croatia from any accredited higher education institution. There are various accrediting agencies and associations that deal with vocational, technical and professional schools. RIT, however, only awards credit from schools that are regionally accredited. When you send us the name of the university where you are currently enrolled, we will check the accreditation and let you know if you can continue with the process immediately, or you need to submit your transcripts to World Education Services (https://www.wes.org/).

Documentation should be sent by mail to one of the following addresses: 
  • RIT Croatia, Don Frana Bulića 6, 20 000 Dubrovnik, Croatia or
  • RIT Croatia, Damira Tomljanovića Gavrana 15, 10 000 Zagreb, Croatia

Once the Admissions Office has received your transcripts and online application, your documentation will be sent to the corresponding departments at the main RIT campus in Rochester, N.Y. RIT will evaluate your transcripts to determine which courses can and cannot be recognized. Usually a grade of "C" or an equivalent grade to "C” or higher is required for transfer credits to be awarded.

After the application is reviewed by RIT, RIT Croatia will notify you of the results. The process can last between four to eight weeks, therefore it is important to get an early start on the admission process.
