Queen's University

Transfer Credit Policies

Students entering into their first year of study at Queen’s, who have previously taken courses during high school that may be eligible for transfer credit, must apply for credit no later than the end of fall term of their first year.  For students in all faculties and schools, a maximum of 18.0 credit units may be granted. Programs include Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, French Baccalaureat, CEGEP, and General Certificate of Education (GCE)/A Levels.

Eligible students who do not submit a transfer credit request (and all supporting documents) by the end of first term are considered to have declined credit. Transfer credit requests submitted after fall term of the student’s first year will not be assessed and the student will not receive credit. Please print the form, available online, and submit it to the Client Service Desk on the second floor of Gordon Hall. Forms are also available at the Client Service Desk in Gordon Hall.

Your transfer credit(s) will be posted on SOLUS approximately 10 business days after we receive your official results.

Students who have taken post-secondary credit prior to attending Queen’s, but after graduating high school, must disclose this information on the OUAC application form and will be required to submit documentation prior to a final decision on their application. Failure to disclose all post-secondary studies during time of application is considered Academic Dishonesty and may result in withdrawal from the University.
