College Block Credit Transfer Pathways

Download Transfer Applicant Guide

Our college block transfer pathways allow you to move seamlessly with your college diploma into our honours degree programs. Please view the chart in the Admission Requirements section of "Before Applying" below, to determine which diplomas are applicable for a Block Credit Transfer Pathway and will reduce your time towards your degree! 

If you have a college diploma, but it is not listed in the pathways chart, please visit our "General Transfer Applicant" web pages. If you have some diploma coursework but have not completed a diploma, please visit our "General Transfer Applicant" web pages.

Before applying

  • Check that you meet the admission requirements
    If you are in your final year of diploma completion or have a completed diploma and your diploma is listed in the chart below, then you are eligible to receive a block of transfer credit.

    The diplomas listed in the chart have been determined to have academic alignment with a University of Guelph-Humber program and have met specific high school subject admission requirements.

    Diplomas must be granted by a recognized institution.

Estimated cut-off range
College block credit transfer applicants require a minimum cumulative average of 75% for admission consideration.

All programs have an estimated cut-off cumulative average of 75%. Exact cut-offs for the current cycle will be determined by the quantity and quality of applications received and the number of places available in the respective program. Possession of a cumulative final average at or above within the estimated cut-off does not guarantee an offer of admission.

Transfer credit
Please refer to the chart (below) to review the block of transfer credit granted for diploma programs in Ontario. Diplomas must be granted by a recognized institution.

  • Approximately 1 year of full-time study or 10 courses, equivalent to 5.0 credits.
  • Approximately 2 years of full-time study or 20 courses, equivalent to 10.0 credits.

Your transfer credit will be determined once you apply. An official Transfer Credit Assessment will be included with your Offer of Admission.
