Transfer Explorer

If you are applying from a Canadian university, you can use Transfer Explorer to see whether the University of Toronto has previously awarded transfer credit for courses you have taken, are taking, or plan to take. If one or more of your courses does not appear on Transfer Explorer, it likely hasn’t been assessed previously and the relevant materials (course outlines/syllabi) would need to be reviewed to determine if transfer credit can be granted. Transfer Explorer course equivalencies do not represent a guarantee that students will receive transfer credit.

Upper-year studies

If you have been admitted to upper-year studies, this means that based on the number of courses you have completed or have in progress at the time of your admission, we believe that it is likely that you will receive 4.0 or more transfer credits, making you an upper year standing student. Your exact year of study will only be determined once your mandatory transfer credit assessment is complete. Note that you may still be required to take first year and/or prerequisite courses at U of T Mississauga for your program of interest.


Applying for transfer credits

We recommend that you pay the $30 fee and submit your transfer credit application as soon as you receive an offer of admission.

Your eligible courses will be assessed for equivalency, and your year of standing will be determined based on the number of transfer credits awarded. Depending on the result of your transfer credit assessment, you then may be eligible to apply to a specific program of study.
