What is Transfer Credit? Transfer credit is when students use their previous post-secondary studies towards a new credential at another institution.
Steps for applying for transfer credit to CNC from another institution:
- Official Transcript - an official transcript must be forwarded in a sealed envelope directly from the issuing institution to the College of New Caledonia
- Detailed Course Outlines - for all courses not appearing in the BC Transfer Guide (above). Outlines must be from the same year and/or month that the student took the course and include the following information:
- comprehensive description of the course material covered
- number of instruction hours/lab hours per week
- semester length
- grading profile
- Note: calendar descriptions are not adequate for transfer credit evaluation
- Academic Advisor appointment - after yourofficial transcript has been sent to CNC and you have all the documentation required (see step 2 for courses not on BC Transfer Guide), make an appointment with an Academic Advisor at CNC and we will review your courses for transfer credit and submit it to our admissions department
Did you know there are different kinds of transfer credits
- Equivalent Credit is when CNC has an equivalent course to the one being reviewed for transfer credit. The student would receive an equivalent course credit. For example: TRU-OL English 1101 is equivalent to CNC English 103. Course equivalences can be found on the BC Transfer Guide website.
- Unassigned credit is when CNC does not offer an equivalent course and a 100 level, or 200 level unassigned credit would be awareded if the course(s) is taken at a recognized institutiton, receives transfer credit at major research universities within that province, and the syllabus (course outline) meets CNC expectations (hours, competencies, grading etc.)
