Ontario’s universities are working collaboratively with colleges and with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to ensure that students have a wide range of options for easy movement between postsecondary institutions and to expand, enhance and streamline the credit transfer process.
What is credit transfer?
Universities and colleges use the term “credit transfer” (or transfer credit) to describe the process of granting credit to a student for courses already completed at another institution. This may include courses completed at postsecondary institutions as well as International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement secondary school courses. College students may also apply to enroll in a specific transfer program that offers a defined ‘pathway’ between a college and a university.

Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT)
The newly-established Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT) marks a big step forward for credit transfer in Ontario. ONCAT will facilitate and support collaboration between postsecondary institutions to continue developing transfer pathways among Ontario's publicly-assisted colleges and universities.
ONTransfer is a new online guide that helps students to move between and among educational credentials, programs, and institutions. ONTransfer helps students to plan their education pathways by providing interactive transfer information as well as links to transfer advisors and transfer policies at postsecondary institutions.
