Transfer Credits

Ryerson undergraduate students who have confirmed their Offer of Admission are eligible to apply for transfer credit.  Students who have completed previous post-secondary studies (at an accredited institution) may be eligible for transfer credit for electives or other non-clinical courses in Levels 1 and 2. Each application will be assessed on an individual basis. An Offer of Admission does not guarantee that credits will be awarded. Generally, transfer or challenge credits will not reduce the time required to complete the program.

There is no fee for applying for transfer credits for newly approved undergraduate students. A $50 Transfer Credit Late Fee is charged after April 1 of your first year for each submission of a transfer credit application, appeal or documentation required for incomplete applications.  Visit Transfer Credit Deadlines for more information:  http://www.ryerson.ca/currentstudents/transfercredits/deadlines/index.html

Students must visit www.ryerson.ca/currentstudents/transfercredits/ for transfer credit application forms and complete instructions.

Courses from accredited universities are considered for Transfer Credit when successfully completed with a minimum grade of 60 percent (C-).

Courses from accredited post-secondary colleges and institutions of technology may be considered for Transfer Credit when completed with a minimum grade of 70 percent (B-).

Transfer credits may be granted for the following courses:

Level One:
Required Group 1 - Women's Studies Elective (2 credits)
Professionally Related Electives (1 credit)
Anatomy and Physiology (BLG 10A/B)
Critical Appraisal of Research Literature (MWF 109)

Level Two:
