Transfer Credits

Transferring credits? It’s easy at Cambrian!

Transfer credits are granted for courses completed at another recognized post-secondary institution which are deemed equivalent to a course at Cambrian. If you have a college or university level course that is similar to a Cambrian course, you may be eligible for a transfer credit.

  • You will need to provide your official transcript and full course outlines to have any transfer credits assessed.
  • Grade requirement: A minimum grade of “C” (60%) is required for a course to be considered for transfer credit for most programs.
  • Course equivalency: Courses will be evaluated on criteria such as content, learning outcomes, credit value and number of teaching hours.
  • Accreditation: Course must be completed at a public post-secondary institution in Canada or an accredited international institution to be eligible for transfer credit assessment.
How to apply for transfer credit
