The University of Manitoba assesses transfer credit as a part of the application for admission process. Course assessment will commence once your application has been received. Courses are assessed on a course-by-course basis by the applicable department or teaching unit on campus and assigned a University of Manitoba equivalent, if one exists. In some cases where a direct equivalent does not exist, students may receive general (unallocated) credit.
Transfer credit regulations are program specific and may vary considerably depending on the faculty or school of application; some may only consider courses completed within the last 10 years.
The U of M Transfer Credit Equivalencies database is now available as a reference tool to look up current course assessments. Please take note of the guidelines outlined on the database access page as these course assessments are subject to change.
APPLYING AS A TRANSFER STUDENT
Applicants who have attempted 24 credit hours of coursework will be considered for admission on their post-secondary grades. However, secondary/high school transcripts may still be necessary for courses requiring pre-requisites.
APPLYING AS A SECOND DEGREE STUDENT
The rules regarding assessment of transfer credit for Second Degree students will vary between programs. Some programs require the assessment of all completed course work from accredited colleges or universities, while other programs restrict assessment to courses which may be used to satisfy course pre-requisites or specific program requirements.
