Academic Bank of Credits (ABC)

The “Academic Bank of Credits” (ABC) is an educational digital platform created to facilitate students’ seamless mobility between or within degree-granting Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) through a formal system of credit recognition, credit accumulation, credit transfers, and credit redemption to promote distributed and flexible teaching and learning. The ABC platform will provide students with the opportunity to register for a unique ABC ID, an interactive dashboard to see their credit accumulation and options to begin a choice-based credit transfer mechanism.
