Current Queen's students who are transferring from one faculty to another (i.e. from the Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science to the Faculty of Arts & Science) will have the courses that they have taken at Queen's examined to see if any of these completed credits can be applied towards their new degree program.
If you are a current student applying to change your academic program, you will NOT need to submit any information about what courses you have taken at Queen's (meaning that you will not need to provide Undergraduate Admission with course descriptions).
For Internal Transfer students, a Statement of Transfer Credit will be completed by Undergraduate Admission. Internal Transfer students can expect to receive this information at the time that they receive an offer of admission to their new academic program.
Each student's Statement of Transfer Credit will clearly outline which courses from their original academic program have been assessed by Undergraduate Admission. Only courses that a student is receiving transfer credit(s) for will be listed on the Statement of Transfer Credit. The statement will also indicate what credit(s) the student will be receiving towards their new academic program (in other words, what the course is equivalent to in their new program, and what course weight has been granted). Finally, the Statement of Transfer Credit may include some comments about these courses. These comments may list exclusions or exemptions on transfer credits. (Please be sure to refer to the Glossary of Terms for more information on exclusions and exemptions.)
The following faculties and schools provide some information regarding transferable courses in their Academic Calendars: Faculty of Arts & Science, Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science, School of Business, and School of Nursing.
