Usually the document is issued in around 5 weeks after the end of the exam session (in accordance with the Sofia University`s regulations).

Kindly be aware that according to Rector’s Order No. РД–19–242/02.07.2021 Transcripts of Records are issued after covering all financial obligations regarding your accommodation at the dormitories (in case you are accommodated there).

Once issued, the document will be sent to you and the Home University coordinator via email.

You can receive ECTS credits only for the courses indicated in your Study Plan (Before or During short-term study) and which you have passed successfully. All courses have to be selected from our official course catalogue both for Erasmus and exchange students.
