Transfer credits are courses you've completed at one school that can be used to meet the requirements of a degree or diploma at a different college or university.
The University Transfer program lets you mix and match your credit courses to create an educational plan that’s right for you. Full-time, part-time, general studies of a specific focus- it’s your custom program.
After two years in the University Transfer program you may be eligible to complete your degree at UBC, University of the Fraser Valley, Capilano U, Royal Roads University, Vancouver Island University, UVic, Thompson Rivers, Simon Fraser, UNBC and more!
