You have the opportunity to apply for transfer credits for your ‘reachback’ courses and the courses that are determined by your program major. You are allowed to apply for a maximum number of transfer credits that is equivalent to the number of ‘reachbacks’ you were assigned in your offer of admission. For example, if you were assigned 5 ‘reachbacks’ on your offer, you may apply a maximum of 5 transfer credits toward your degree.
Transfer credits are only official after validation by the Transfer Credit Unit of the Registrar's Office.
Note: There are a limited number of transfer credits that are applicable. The information below will help you to determine which courses to submit transfer credit applications for.
To determine which transfer credits to apply for you will require the following:
- Your offer of admission – to confirm your ‘reachback’ courses.
- A copy of your college transcript – to confirm courses taken and grades received.
- College Equivalency Table for your college - to determine equivalent Transfer Credits. Equivalencies highlighted on the College Equivalency Tables are non-‘reachback’ 1st and 2nd semester courses and you should not apply for these credits.
- Please use the Ryerson Undergraduate Calendar to determine which eligible Transfer Credits apply toward your 5th through 8th semester requirements (Required, Professional, and Professionally-Related courses).
Under each major you can view the third-year direct-entry full-time or part-time program section in the Ryerson Undergraduate Calendar.
