In general, students who have studied at a Canadian University or College will automatically be assessed to advanced standing credit without formally requesting or petitioning for transfer credit.
Exceptions to this are students entering Engineering. These students must petition for credit and provide detailed course outlines and syllabi. Please follow the link below to view instructions for requesting Engineering credit.
Students seeking transfer credit for courses taken outside of Canada must provide full course outlines (syllabi) for a transfer credit evaluation to take place.
Please note: in all cases, students must request all transfer credit at the point of admission. However, we know that sometimes course descriptions can be difficult to obtain. As such, students have up to one year from the date of admission to submit course descriptions and request transfer credit. After that date, requests for transfer credit will not be accepted.
Credit for CEGEP students is awarded at the point of admission. Typically with any CEGEP applicant there are options with regard to the credit that can be awarded. We try and choose the credit pattern that advantages the student most in their chosen major.
Occasionally, students change their major or degree and petition for different credits from their CEGEP studies. There is no need to formally petition for credit in this circumstance, simply contact the office of admissions at: firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for your CEGEP credit to be re-designated. Please remember to provide us with details around your major or program change and the transfer credit you are requesting.
When courses are evaluated students may receive one of three possible decisions.
If you have received either no credit or a generic credit for courses you have taken at a previous institution you may appeal to have the course evaluated again. You may only submit this petition if you have new and detailed information about the course that was not presented during the first evaluation.
