Transfer Credits

Transfer credit is when students use their previous post-secondary studies towards a new credential at another institution. Did you know that courses you take at CNC may transfer to other post-secondary schools in British Columbia?

For more information regarding course transfers and to see how they could possibly transfer between institutions, check the BC Transfer Guide.

Types of Transfer Credit

Direct (Assigned) Credit

When CNC has an equivalent course to the one being reviewed for transfer credit, the student will receive direct course credit which may be used towards meeting prerequisites or specific program completion requirements.

Unassigned Credit

When CNC does not have an equivalent course, unassigned credit may be assigned. Unassigned credit is granted at the appropriate level and may be used towards meeting elective requirements.

Time Limit for Transfer Credit

Transfer credit cannot be awarded to courses completed more than 10 years prior to admission to CNC. Please refer to the Ten Year Timeline for Program Completion policy for more information.
