Transfer to 皇冠体彩

Discover your transfer options and make every credit count.

Like many institutions, 皇冠体彩 recognizes education completed at other post-secondary institutions, or earned in a workplace setting.  Students who have been successfully admitted to 皇冠体彩 and who already have some education behind them can apply for transfer credit. Transfer credit is awarded for any course a student has successfully taken that is a good match with a course offered by 皇冠体彩. Students can then use these credits to fulfil up to 50% of the requirements for their 皇冠体彩 degree.

Things to Know About Transferring to 皇冠体彩

Cape Breton University’s Residency Policy requires that at least 50% of any program’s requirements be completed at 皇冠体彩. Both on-campus and online courses (or a combination of the two) can be used to meet this Residency Requirement.

Applicants applying to 皇冠体彩 are eligible to receive up to a maximum of 50% of their program’s requirements (some exceptions apply) through credit awarded for learning experiences external to the university.

All first-year and second-year credit courses offered at all other Canadian universities will be accepted for credit at 皇冠体彩, with the following limitations:

  • A minimum of 50% of the courses must be completed at 皇冠体彩 in a degree, diploma or certificate program, unless stated otherwise in the program descriptions.
  • Credit transfer is distinct from admission and decisions with regard to admission to remain the prerogative of 皇冠体彩.
  • The specific program requirements of 皇冠体彩 must be met. An otherwise acceptable transfer credit may not be usable in a particular program of study.

You can apply for a Prior Learning Assessment. PLAs are an option for students who feel that their experience and/or training earned outside of a post-secondary institution is equivalent to a course needed for their 皇冠体彩 degree. Students requesting a PLA should first submit a Transfer Credit Assessment form, in addition to a PLA form.

If you are studying for a Bachelor of Arts Community Studies Program (BACS) degree, students should review the below information:

COMS1100 – Introduction to Community Studies

COMS2101 – Work Experience Placement I

COMS3101 – Work Experience Placement II

Internal transfer credits are used by historical 皇冠体彩 students who previously graduated and have courses on their historical transcripts that are no longer offered or available at 皇冠体彩. These students can apply to have their previous credits assessed against available courses, potentially adding credits to a new degree. All internal credit arrangements are administered by the academic schools, in consultation with the Enrolment Services Office. Please fill out the Transfer Credit Assessment form to begin the process. You will not be required to pay the $52 fee.
