College Transfer Students

For more than 50 years, Brock has been a leader in helping college students transition to a university education. We grant transfer credit at the point of admission, so in most cases you know what you’ll receive before accepting your offer.

College Transfer Admission Guidelines

  • Admission consideration is primarily based on your most recent college studies. However, we will review your overall academic record for extra evaluation purposes.
  • You must disclose all academic studies on your application in order to be considered for admission and transfer credit.
  • Studies must have been completed in a College of Applied Arts and Technology (Ontario), or equivalent accredited institution as determined by Brock University.
  • Studies completed at a private career college registered under the Ontario Private Career Colleges Act 2005 will not be used to determine admissibility or for the purpose of awarding of transfer credit.
  • Course prerequisites must be met at the Grade 12 university-preparatory level (or equivalent) for all domestic and international applicants. In some cases, prerequisites may be considered from post-secondary studies. Additional documentation may be requested to determine prerequisite equivalency.
  • Brock University will determine the course-to-course equivalents for the purpose of admission and transfer credit. Additional documentation may be required.
  • Any review of transfer credit must be completed within one year of the date of admission.
  • If English is not your first language, you must meet English language proficiency requirements.
  • Admission is not guaranteed by the attainment of the minimum requirements.
  • In some cases,  transfer credits awarded may not fit into your Undergraduate program. Contact your program Academic Advisor to find out how your transfer credits may fit into your program plan.
