Important information about transfer credit timelines:
A change to transfer credit time limit regulations for the Faculty of Business is coming into effect September 1, 2017. For students applying or reactivating their program from September 1, 2017 and onward, transfer credit will not be accepted if the course(s) was completed more than:
» 10 years ago in the Business and Administrative Study area at the senior (300/400) level;
» 5 years ago in CMIS (all levels);
» 10 years ago in Statistics (all levels).
Transfer credit being used to satisfy options other than those in the Business and Administrative Study area will not be restricted. If you are currently working in the field and provide proof of work being completed, this restriction may be waived.
Wondering if your diploma qualifies?
Check out your diploma in our transfer credit database to see what has been awarded in the past or contact the Student Support Centre for more details.
Is the Post Diploma route different from the regular route? Is it a degree?
You are still obtaining the same degree; the Post Diploma route is just a way of recognizing your diploma for credit. Your degree parchment does not reflect the Post Diploma route. You are obtaining the same degree as those in the regular route.
