Transfer credit info
How do I interpret my transfer credit?

- Use our Transfer Credit Guide.
What is unassigned credit?
What should I do if I feel my transfer credits have been assessed incorrectly?
- Make an appointment to see an Academic Advisor. We can go through all of your transfer credits with you and explain how they can be used towards your degree requirements.
- If you would like to request a re-evaluation of any particular unassigned credits, you need to provide detailed course outlines to Enrolment Services using the Articulation Request Form. You should have the detailed course outline if you kept your notes or have access to your course information from your former institution. If not, you can generally obtain them from most university websites. For more information on the articulation process and who to contact if you have questions about your articulation request, please see the Transfer Credit page.
