Maximum Allowable Transfer Credit

In general, transfer credit is limited to the first two years of an undergraduate degree program, but credit at a more senior level is possible with the approval of the faculty concerned. No more than 60 credits of transfer credit, or 50% of required program credits, are allowed in any program, and in some programs the maximum may be less.

Courses successfully completed at recognized colleges in BC and Yukon are granted transfer credit in accordance with agreed-upon equivalencies published in the BC Transfer Guide. Courses successfully completed at recognized universities in BC and recognized colleges and universities outside BC are likewise granted credit on the basis of established equivalencies. Where no previously determined equivalent exists, courses will be assessed for transfer credit on a course-by-course basis. Students may be required to supply a course outline in order that an assessment can be made.
