Credit transfer
Consult with your home institution regarding transfer of AUT coursework.

AUT grading system is different from ECTS academic credit system used in Europe. According to the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology of Iran, the grading system at Amirkabir University of Technology is as follows:
  •  The evaluation of students in each course is based on their attendance in course sessions, activities in the classroom, assignments, and the results of the mid-term and end-term examinations.
  •  Students in each course are evaluated by marks between 0 (minimum) and 20 (maximum).
  •  The minimum grade required for passing at bachelor, master and PhD level courses are 10, 12 and 14 out of 20, respectively. A student who fails in any course is required to repeat it at the earliest opportunity. The mark conversion table to ranking system is categorized as below:
Iranian Grading System Grade Description U.S. Grading Equivalent
16-20 4 A
14-15.9 3 B
12-13.9 2 C
10-11.9 1 D
0-9.9 0 F
