College Block Credit Transfer Pathways

Book an Appointment  Download Transfer Guide

Some college diplomas can give you pre-determined blocks of transfer credit depending on the UofGH program you are applying to. Why does this matter? Our college block credit transfer pathways allow you to move seamlessly with your 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 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.

Before applying

  • 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 pre-determined 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. 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.
  • Approximately 2 years of full-time study or 20 courses, equivalent to 10.0 credits.

All of our offers of admission include a Transfer Credit Assessment so you know at the time of acceptance how much transfer credit you will receive.
