Credit Transfer Requests for Previous General Education Learning
Students who have successfully completed post-secondary (university or college) General Education eligible courses at another recognized academic institution have the opportunity to apply for a Transfer Credit. To apply for a transfer credit, a student must submit a completed Transfer Credit Request Form to the Transfer Credit Officer in the Registrar’s Office, as well as an official copy of their transcript from the institution, and the course outline of the course for which that they are seeking credit.
Courses put forward for General Education credit transfer:
- Must have an identifiable passing grade.
- Must be non-vocational, which means they cannot be profession specific.
- Must not be skills-based, for example, communications, computer/information technology, critical thinking, interpersonal, personal resources management, or math/numeracy courses.
- Cannot overlap with core program courses. For example, if a program requires Psychology: Basic Processes, students cannot use introductory psych course for General Elective credit.
- Should be rooted in core academic areas of Humanities and Social Sciences such as psychology, sociology, cultural, philosophy, history, geography, literature, political sciences, etc.
