REQUEST TRANSFER OF CREDITS

CREDIT TRANSFER

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, detailed course outlines may be requested for evaluation.

Current and previous Niagara College students who wish to transfer credits from one Niagara College program to another (beyond semester one) should contact transfer credit at 905-735-2211, ext. 7151.

IMPORTANT:

Obtaining a suitable timetable for your first day of classes will be considerably easier if you process your Transfer Credit request(s) early. Transcripts will be kept on file for one year.
