Transfer To Canadore

(External Credit Transfer)

Credit transfer is the process of having your prior formal education assessed against courses in your program of study. In this way you may avoid the duplication of coursework where courses are assessed as essentially the same.

  • Have your credit assessed! This is done on a course by course basis through the Credit Transfer Application process.

New for Fall 2019, we have an online transfer credit application. Follow this link to complete your on-line Credit Transfer Application. Please note that you must complete one application per course.

  • Please ensure your official transcript has been received by Canadore’s Admissions Office.
  • Full course outlines must be included in your application for each course being reviewed.

Although we accept transfer credit applications at any time, to ensure you get the results before the semester drop deadline, applications are due 15 business days prior to the start of each semester.  View all important dates and deadlines.

For detailed information about transferring your credits go to our Credit Transfer Student Guide.
