Students entering Queen's who are transferring from another post-secondary institution may be eligible to receive credit toward their Queen's degree program for completed courses taken at their previous institution(s).
In most cases, transfer credit assessment will take place after a student has accepted their offer of admission. In order to have their courses assessed for transfer credit, students must submit detailed course descriptions to Undergraduate Admission. Undergraduate Admission will not request these from a student's previous institution(s) on their behalf. Typically, course descriptions can be found through the previous institution's website. Any questions about obtaining course desciptions should be directed to the student's previous institution. Also, only courses for which course descriptions have been received can be assessed for transfer credit.
Once they have been received by Undergraduate Admission, course descriptions are forwarded directly to the Undergraduate Chair(s) of the department(s) that corresponds to the original course (or to the department that is most similar to the original course). Transferability of a course is based on the grade that the student achieved in the course, as well as the equivalency of that course to Queen's courses. Credit is not granted for courses with a final grade lower that 60% or C. Note that only the credit for the course will be transferred to Queen's, not the grade that the student achieved.
After assessment, a completed Statement of Transfer Credit will be mailed to the student. Students must complete the majority of the academic work required for both their degree program and their concentration through Queen's University. Each student's Statement of Transfer Credit will list all credits that have been applied to the student's Queen's degree program.
ATTENTION: Students applying to the QUEEN'S NURSING ADVANCED STANDING TRACK program are required to have taken both a psychology and a physiology course at a university level in order to be considered for admission to the program.
