In publica commoda

Accumulation system is the designation for a system of performance credits which enables students to score credit points for every successful performance in a given degree programme. The points are credited to a student’s personal performance credit account. If their number and type(s) fulfil the requirements of a particular degree programme, this will lead to the student being granted the respective university degree. An accumulation system should be compatible with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), so that it can also function as a transfer system.
