University Transfer Students

Transfer students are important contributors to the Brock University community, bringing a wealth of skills and experience with them from their previous institutions. We grant transfer credit at the point of admission, so in most cases you know what you’ll receive before accepting your offer. 

University Transfer Credit Policy

Degree-level courses completed at an accredited Canadian university, or equivalent accredited institution as determined by Brock University will be recognized for transfer credit:

  • Up to a maximum 15.0 credits toward a 4-Year 20.0 credit Honours degree.
  • Up to 10.0 credits toward a 3-Year 15.0 credit Pass degree.
  • NOTE: students pursuing a second/subsequent undergraduate degree are subject to specific policies and requirements.

University Transfer Admission Guidelines

  • Admission consideration is primarily based on your most recent undergraduate university 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 transfer credit.
  • Applicants who have completed a minimum of one full-time semester of university study with an overall average of 60% are eligible for admission consideration as a university transfer student. Some programs may require higher admission averages or prerequisites.
  • Applicants must be in good academic standing at all previously attended institutions.
  • 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.
