UGC: Switching between courses and colleges will not affect credits | India News


NEW DELHI: The University Grants Commission (UGC) will discuss initiating operationalisation of the Academic Bank of Credit (ABC) with universities on Thursday. During the deliberation the National e-Governance Division (NeGD) of the ministry of electronics and information technology will share the end-to-end flow and guide of the ABC for the institutions. By using ABC, students can switch between institutions and programmes and earn requisite credits before getting the final degree from the parent university.
The commission on Tuesday has also instructed the universities/ institutions to register in the single window ABC system.
The ABC, implemented under the National Education Policy 2020, is a national-level initiative to store the academic credits earned by students in higher education institutions (HEIs). It will also facilitate students to maintain and transfer credits between HEIs and programmes. All students will be able to open accounts in the ABC to commute credits towards the award of desired degree, diploma or certificate under the multiple entry and exit system in higher education.
