About

As per National Education Policy 2020, the Academic Bank of Credits (ABC) has been envisaged to facilitate the academic mobility of students with the freedom to study across the Higher Education Institutions in the country with an appropriate "credit transfer" mechanism from one programme to another, leading to attain a Degree/ Diploma/PG-diploma, etc.,



The registration of institutions and services will be a critical function of the academic bank of credit.

ABC shall deposit credits awarded by registered institutions into students' accounts. The Academic bank credit(s) can only be shared from institutions, not directly from the student. Only credits submitted by an authorized institution will be accepted for storage and validation by the ABC.

Process

The credits earned by students will be deposited in their ABC ‘Academic Account.’ If the student moves to a different institution, the accumulated credits get transferred to the account of the new institution. Credits may be transferred from an institution to be accumulated in another programme offered by the same or another institution. Once the credit is redeemed for the award of the above, it would be irrevocably debited from the respective student’s ‘Academic Account’ of ABC.

ABC for mobility and credit recognition

Successful learning mobility requires academic recognition and transfer of credits. Recognition of credits is the process through which an institution certifies that learning outcomes achieved and assessed in another institution satisfy the requirements of one of the programmes they offer.
