Transfer Credit for Access Studies

Courses taken as an Access Studies (or non-degree) student may be approved for transfer toward a graduate program with the permission of the graduate program and the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

Consistent with standard transfer credit regulations, students are limited to transferring a maximum of 12 credits or up to 40% of the program credit requirements, whichever is more, toward their master's program. No more than 6 credits of transfer credit may be at the undergraduate level (300-/400-level). In order to be eligible for transfer, the course(s):

  • must be completed with a minimum "B" standing
  • must not have been counted toward the completion of another degree or program
  • must have been completed no more than five years prior to the time the student commences the degree program
  • must not be used as a basis for admission to the graduate program
