Course credits from other colleges, from universities, and in some cases, Ontario secondary schools may be eligible for transfer towards a program of study at St. Lawrence College. If a student has such outside credits, and the credits are related to the program in which they are interested, he/she may wish to be considered for credit transfer. In order to have previous credits evaluated the student must submit: an “Application for Transfer Credit/Exemption” available either online, through their Academic Office or at Student Services; official transcripts; and course outlines (including course descriptions, objectives/learning outcomes and assessment criteria). The Application should be submitted upon acceptance to the program. The deadline for submission is the 10th day of classes of his/her initial semester of study. If a request for credit is submitted during the same term in which the course is being taken, the deadline for submission is the fifth day of classes. If the student applies by the deadline, and the credit is approved, the course being replaced will be removed from his/her transcript. If the student applies after the deadline, but before the academic penalty deadline, then a “W” grade will be applicable for the course being replaced. If the student applies after the academic penalty deadline then an “F” grade would be applicable. The transfer credit can still be used to satisfy graduation requirements.

 

Students may also be asked to provide other documentation to assist in the evaluation of previous credits, for example: assignments, tests, etc. In addition, once the equivalency is established credit will normally be granted on the basis of the other institution’s transcript and supporting documentation but demonstrated proof of competence may be required. The program faculty will assess the student’s documentation and grant any relevant transfer credits for equivalent courses. Credits transferred to a program at St. Lawrence College contribute to the requirements for graduation and appear on the academic record as “T”. “T” grades do not count towards a student’s GPA. Contact the program coordinator for further information.

 

Applications for transfer credit into a college degree program will be assessed in accordance with Postsecondary Education Quality Assessment Board (PEQAB) standards and guidelines. In particular, applications for transfer credits within a college degree program will be assessed for the proportion of affinity with and/or applicability to the specialist content of the program and other curricular requirements. Transfer credits must be equivalent to a degree-level of outcomes. The credit must have been earned at a Canadian public university, an organization authorized to offer degree programs on the basis of Ontario Ministerial consent, or an accredited institution with the legal authority to grant degrees and is a member of recognized association of degree granting institutions, or is otherwise acceptable to the PEQAB board. The minimum acceptable grade or level of achievement to qualify for transfer credit is 67% for core courses and 60% for non-

core/breadth courses in college degree programs.
