Application for ECTS Certification

Any educational institution (university, open university, educational institute, vocational institution, distance learning center, lifelong learning center) seeking ECTS certification by the EAHEA must demonstrate that it meets all the EAHEA's standards and it must provide evidence in support of this application. Preparing this application and providing the required exhibits will guide the applicant through the minimum self study necessary to file the complete report for the assessment of the institution's quality and integrity.


In making this "ECTS Certification Application", I certify that all information contained within and accompanying this application to be true, that this institution is legally authorized to conduct its educational activities according to the laws and procedures of the corresponding country, state and/or province, and that I understand that certification is a voluntary, non-governmental review process.

I confirm the commitment of this institution to the standards stated by the European Agency for Higher Education & Accreditation. Events which occur as a direct consequence of working practices deviating from or contravening these standards will be regarded as the sole responsibility of the institution and may lead to the termination of the certification status. Lack of payment of the required fees will lead to the termination of the certification status and any rights established in the EAHEA Regulations. Fees are not refundable.

The institution will provide students and/or trainees with contact details of the EAHEA - European Agency for Higher Education & Accreditation, and to make them aware that they may communicate their satisfaction, complaints or suggestions about their learning experience. All comments will be used for the permanent improvement of the certificated institution and to monitor that the EAHEA policies are respected.




Institutions beginning the certification process must first complete and submit an Inquiry Questionnaire. The following questions serve as the basis for an initial assessment of the institution's eligibility for EAHEA ECTS Certification. Further, this step is designed to lessen the financial and logistical burden of a full certification for those institutions that do not meet the established eligibility requirements. Acceptance of an institution's Inquiry Questionnaire does not constitute approval of the institution as an initial applicant, but allows it to continue to the application stage of the process.


By submitting this completed form, the institution attests that the information contained herein is true and correct. Further, the institution has reviewed the eligibility criteria outline in ECTS Credits Regulations page and believes that it meets these criteria. Upon receipt of this completed questionnaire and a €250 non-refundable processing fee (secretary services) by the EAHEA office, a preliminary determination of eligibility for certification will be initiated after which a notification letter will be forwarded to the institution.
