When you use the Study Progress & Graduation app at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, you must note the following special points and, if necessary, assign coursework yourself.
Under the terms of § 47 of the Framework Ordinance Governing Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree and Minor Study Programs Offered by the University of Zurich’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, academic modules not counted toward your degree must be indicated as such in your academic record.
Please assign all modules that are not counted toward your study program to the «Credits not counted toward degree/on academic record: total ECTS credits» category.
If you have completed Bachelor’s modules as requirements for your Master’s program, in the app you must assign them to the category «Credits not credited to the degree/for requirements: total ECTS credits».
Note: Bachelor’s modules that can be credited at both Bachelor’s and Master’s level (vertically cross-listed modules) may under certain circumstances be assigned to a Master’s program. This affects fulfillment of the conditions for successfully completing the program. In this case, please request an adjustment to your required modules using the online form.
If you are enrolled in a discontinued study program, the app shows you the total ECTS credits, the number of graded modules, and the grade for the program. The requirements for completing study programs that are being discontinued are not shown.
Prepare your graduation proposal in accordance with the regulations and submit it in the app. The Office of Student Affairs will review your proposal and adapt it if necessary.
In the case of discontinued Bachelor’s study programs, please note the following: If we reject your application, the latest you can book missing coursework is in Spring Semester 2023. For this reason we advise you to submit your graduation proposal as early as possible so that you do not miss the booking deadlines. We will review your graduation proposal within three to four weeks.
The app indicates that you can use coursework for General Studies. However, there is no check on whether modules have been credited for this. As a result, the requirements for completing General Studies are always fulfilled (green).
You must assign modules you wish to use for General Studies in the app yourself.
In principle you can use any UZH module for General Studies, with the exception of German course up to and including level C1.
Before Fall Semester 2019 knowledge of Latin was acquired with the module «06SM_latinum» with 12 ECTS credits using a numerical grade. You can apply for the grade to be given as “passed” rather than as a numerical grade (as per § 49 of the Program Regulations of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences).
If you would like this change to be made, send an e-mail with your last name, first name, student ID number, and study program to email@example.com.
If you do a major study program at UZH and minor study programs of up to 60 ECTS credits in the Bachelor's degree or of up to 30 ECTS credits in the Master's degree at another university, the other university must confirm completion for the credit to be transferred to the UZH degree with an overall grade (and if applicable an academic record or transcript of records). As soon as the minor study program is accredited, you can register for graduation in the «Study Progress & Graduation» app.
Please ask the other university to send the mentioned documents by postal mail to the Office of Student Affairs or contact us via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information is available under Mobility.
The Office of Student Affairs will send the final records no later than twelve weeks after registration for graduation; no earlier than 31 January in the Fall Semester and 30 April or 31 July in the Spring Semester.
Please also note the following:

If you have a Bachelor’s degree from another higher education institution or have interrupted your studies (withdrawn from the University) since your Bachelor’s degree at UZH, please apply to matriculate by way of online application. You will find more information on transferring to the Master’s program on the website of the Admissions Office.
