Policy on Transfer of Course Credits


(a) Acceptance of transfer credits among Ontario Universities shall be based on the recognition that, while learning experiences may differ in a variety of ways, their substance may be essentially equivalent in terms of their content and rigour. Insofar as possible, acceptance of transfer should allow for the maximum recognition of previous learning experience in university-level courses.
(b) Subject to degree, grade, program requirements, any course offered for credit by one university shall be accepted for credit by another Ontario university when there is essential equivalency in course content.
