Transfer Applicants College Block Credit Transfer Pathway

You are in the process of completing a diploma or have a completed diploma from a recognized Ontario college that is considered a college block credit transfer pathway. Pathways/eligible diplomas are identified in the chart in the admission requirements section of “Before Applying” below.

Before applying

  • Get to know the University of Guelph-Humber
    Research your program of interest. Visit campus, come to an event, and talk to our students and instructors. Check out our YouTube videos and find us on social media for interviews with students and staff! It’s about finding the right fit for you.
  • Check that you meet the admission requirements
    If you are in-progress (i.e., in your final year of a diploma program) or have a completed diploma from an Ontario college and your diploma is listed in the chart below, then you are eligible to receive a block of predetermined 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.

Estimated cut-off ranges are based on the admission averages from previous years and are provided solely as a point of reference. 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. Admission to the University of Guelph-Humber can be competitive. Possession of an admission average within the estimated cut-off range 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.
