That is to say, it is the acceptance of asignaturas surpassed in some university studies when the student accesses to a new degree.
Also, will be able to recognise credits by accreditation of labour experience and by asignaturas surpassed in university studies no official.
With general character, the criteria for the recognition of credits will be:
The art. 6 of the Royal decree 1393/2007 defines the concept of transfer of credits of the following way:

It treats that in the final file of the student and in the European Supplement to the Title (SET) appear no only the asignaturas cursadas in his degree or the asignaturas recognised but also those other asignaturas and/or matters that the student there was cursado in official studies and that did not go object of recognition.
The asignaturas and/or matters transferred will not compute for the baremación of the academic file.
The criteria that the universities have to follow to the hour to recognise credits by asignaturas surpassed in other official studies are collected in the Royal decree 1393/2007 (and back modifications), arts. 6 and 13.
The universities will have to elaborate and make public his rule of recognition and transfer of credits in accordance with the general criteria included in the Royal decree.
