Admissions Procedure for Transfer Students

ACT accepts credits from regionally accredited institutions for courses for which a grade of "C" or above was received. Transfer credit may be awarded for courses that are similar in content and classroom meeting hours to those offered by ACT. Credit will not be granted for courses that are not deemed relevant to one of the school's degree programs.

International Baccalaureate Credits: Applicants who have received scores of 4 and above on higher-level exams will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis for transfer credit. As much as one year of course work may be recognized, thus entitling applicants holding this diploma to sophomore standing upon entry.

Transfer students must spend at a minimum their last two semesters (i.e., their last full academic year) in residence at the College.

All Transfer applicants are required to submit the following when applying for admission to the program:

  1. An Application Form.
  2. An official transcript of grades. If you have not attended an English- or Greek-speaking college/university, an official translation into English is required (in this case, evidence of proficiency in English is required).
  3. Copies of course syllabi or course descriptions for all the courses you have completed and for those on which you are currently enrolled.
  4. A copy of your institution's catalogue current to your period of attendance.

Admissions Philosophy

Published in Admissions

ACT seeks to enroll students who will enable it to achieve its vision of becoming the premier, internationally-oriented, English-language college of higher education in the Balkan Region.  Our goal is to promote innovative learning practices and humanitarian values and provide our students with an educational environment that fuels their passion for learning and develops a greater sense of global citizenship and social responsibility.

Our admissions philosophy is focused on drawing student to ACT who will become active members of the campus community and help us move the campus toward its primary goals for innovative and interactive learning.  Each application for admission is carefully reviewed to assess the student's academic ability and willingness to be part of a vibrant community atmosphere.  We want to ensure that every student who enrolls at ACT will uphold the standards of integrity and personal responsibility we expect of each member of the broader Anatolia learning community.

ACT admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the New England Association indicates that it meets, or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality and integrity periodically applied through a peer review process. ACT is the only institution in Northern Greece accredited by NEASC, the association that accredits prestigious U.S. universities among which are Harvard and Yale.

EU Validation

ACT's undergraduate degree programs are currently validated by The Open University, UK. This validation further ensures that ACT's undergraduate programs meet the requirements of the European Union directive 36/2005 governing the recognition of degrees and professional rights in Greece. ACT’s undergraduate students, complete a single course of studies leading simultaneously to a dual degree: a US degree issued by ACT and accredited by NEASC and a European degree (validated Honors Diploma) awarded directly by the Open University, UK. ACT is the only institution of higher education in Northern Greece to enjoy such a privilege.

Professional Recognition

According to law 4093/2012 and subsequent regulations (Government Gazettes: 229/19.11.12, 3324/12.12.12 and 258/08.12.2014), degrees awarded for programs of studies by colleges that are accredited by international organizations (including NEASC, ACT’s accreditation body), are eligible for recognition of professional equivalency to degrees awarded by the Greek standard system of higher education.
