The grading system is depend on the rules and regulations of the college as stipulated in the College’s Senate Legislation.

Both traditional credit hour system and European Credit Transfer Systems (ECTS) will be used. 

1 credit hour is equivalent with 1.66 ECTS; thus a 3 credit hour course will have 3 x 1.66 = 5 ECTS

Each course in the catalogue is assigned a credit hour and European Credit Transfer system (ECTS) point value so that teachers and students would understand how much time and load it takes to complete the course.Most Western European countries have moved to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

This system was developed by the European Commission to provide common overseas procedures for recognizing studies completed within participating countries within Europe.In ECTS terms, 60 credits represent the full time load of an academic year of full-time study, 30 credits represent the full time load of an academic semester of full-time study.

At the Paradigm College, this would equal 30 MC credits for a full-time academic year, 15 MC credits for a full-time academic semester.

At Paradigm College, we use American Credit Hour system. In order to get the equivalence value of American Credit hour point to ECTS point, multiply the Credit hour points by 2 or (divide ECTS in half).Working Hours or Student’s work load is the average total time it takes to complete the course. Work load is calculated by multiplying every ECTS credit point by 25-30 hours.

At Paradigm College we believe that one ECTS takes 25 working hours for many courses. For example, since three credit hour course is equivalent to 6 ECTS; In order to get the total working load or students working hours in a 6 ECTS course, simply multiply 25 hours by 6 ECTS gives us 150 Students Working Hour per 3 cr. Hrs course.

You can simply open the course breakdown page and you will find them in a series of tables. As all courses are organized in chronological order, you can see the list of courses you would like to take or check in their respective terms.

If you are not sure which course has a prerequisite or whether you can take a particular course in a particular term you can always consult your Course counselor.

The first one is you can use our mobile payment method which you will receive the details with your welcome letter that you have received after your initial online application. Second, you can deposit in our bank account as detailed in the same letter. and Finally you can also make your payment in cash or your card on our POS machine if you live close to where our main or branch offices are located.

As we have discussed in the payment page of our website, you are expected to pay 1755 Birr per term. As there are four terms in an academic year, you can simply multiply 1755 by 4 and you will get your annual fee of 7020 Birr. As an undergraduate degree requires four years of study, the total amount is 28,080 Birr.
