TRANSFER CREDITS AND ADVANCED STANDING

TRANSFER CREDITS, EQUIVALENCIES AND ADVANCED STANDING

Applicants with previous postsecondary education will be assessed for transfer credit upon receipt of an official transcript from the previous institution. Niagara College does not charge a fee for this service. Credits are considered on a course-by-course basis and will be granted where deemed equivalent in content and learning objectives to corresponding Niagara College courses. In some instances, course outlines must be in English. Translated course outlines will need to be provided and a translator’s note may be requested. For more information, please email intlcredittransfer@niagaracollege.ca.

Transfer credits are the acceptance of course credits earned at another institution being used to earn Niagara College credit(s).
