TRANSCRIPT OF RECORDS – In order to get a Transcript of Records stating information about your courses and learning results, your teachers need to sign a so-called Schein at the end of the semester. You will receive this Schein via email. Since not all courses are graded at the HfK, you should inform teachers that you do need credit points and grades for your home university. On the form, ECTS points and/or grades should be filled in if necessary (but only according to the German grading system!). ECTS points reflect time commitment (1 ECTS equals a workload of 30 hours), grades reflect the quality of performance. Please return the signed Scheine to the International Office. Only once that is done, the Transcript of Records can be completed. It will be sent to your home university.
PLEASE NOTE – Even if your home university does not require you to provide any records of your time here, we ask you to complete the Learning Agreement and get your Scheine signed. To issue a Transcript of Records afterwards is costly and sometimes impossible.
