Credit for Prior Post-Secondary Education

Admission Conditions

  • The Faculty will consider the completed certificate or diploma programs (listed under Admission Requirements) or 24 credit hours of university level course work as the basis of admission even if the courses were completed more than 10 years ago.
  • Courses completed at community colleges or junior colleges may also be used as basis for admission and possible transfer credit.

Transfer Credits

  • No credit will be given for uncompleted certificate programs offered by the University of Manitoba  
  • Transfer credit for courses completed in diploma programs will be determined through a course by course articulation process.
  • If you are admitted on the basis of one of the four certificate programs but have also completed degree courses at the U of M or other post-secondary institutions, the latter will be evaluated by the respective department(s) for possible transfer credit, if the courses were completed within the past ten years.
  • If you completed more than one of the four certificate programs or more than one diploma program, you can receive transfer credit for the program used as basis for admission, even if you completed it more than ten years ago. Courses in the additional certificate or diploma will be evaluated for possible transfer credits if they were completed within the past ten years.
  • If you completed more than 24 credit hours of university-level courses used as the basis for admission, these courses can be considered for transfer credit if you completed them within the past ten years.
  • All courses that the University approves for transfer credit will be applied to the degree, subject to the Faculty of Arts residency requirement. These courses will also be included in the total “F” grades count for academic assessment.
