Transfer students

If you have completed one or more years (24 credit hours) of university study, you can apply via the advanced entry route. Transfer students from other universities may receive a maximum of two years (60 credit hours) of transferable credit to be applied towards a UM degree, subject to faculty regulations and requirements.

We assess transfer credit after we have received your application, which includes your transcripts and course outlines. Each course is assessed by the applicable unit on campus and assigned a UM equivalent, if one exists. Apply now to begin the process of transferring your credits!

Mature students

We recognize that mature students often need extra support to achieve their goals when balancing their studies with family, financial obligations, and other personal commitments. We can provide timely, relevant and accurate information during the academic year and assistance with course selection, registration and degree planning.

For admission purposes, UM considers a mature student to be anyone 21 years of age or older and missing the regular high school entrance requirements. This student application type is only open to Canadian Citizens and permanent residents.
