Transfer credit assessment

Your completed postsecondary coursework will be assessed for relevance and credit awarded where applicable, up to a maximum of 10.0 credits. Transcripts, in addition to course syllabi and other supporting documents, will be evaluated at the time of admission to determine potential transfer credit. An Official Transfer Credit Assessment will be included with your offer of admission. Once enrolled at the University, your course sequencing at the University may be adjusted based on your transfer credits. 

Vulnerable sector screening

If your program has a placement/internship component that begins in your first semester at the University, it is important to note that you may be required to complete a Vulnerable Sector Screening before your placement/internship begins. Please visit guelphhumber.ca/placements for additional details.

Have you attended college and university?

If you have both college and university coursework, then you should speak with Admission Services regarding admission requirements and transfer credit assessment.
