The equation after the internal transfer between colleges:

1. All the hours taught by the student are included in the GPA.

2. The university requirements (courses shared by all university students, regardless of college) are automatically equated from the academic system, and without the need for a request from the student.

3. The major courses taught by the student in her major  transferred from it are equivalent to the corresponding courses in the major  transferred to it automatically when they are with the same symbol and name, or they are equivalent to the courses in the major transferred to it .

4. The additional and different courses are equivalent to the named as it appears from the university's educational affairs agency.

5. A portion of the hours that are not equivalent to the new  specialty is calculated as optional hours with the same number of optional hours according to the student's transfer program.

6. The transferred student must back to her academic advisor in her new major to follow the equivalence of her courses and register the appropriate courses.

7. The student is fully responsible for completing the graduation requirements, according to the plan in which she was registered in the major she was transferred to.
