Terms Defined

Exclusion: U of T courses in which you may not enrol unless you forfeit the transfer credit. In addition, you may not enrol in any courses that are listed in the UTM Calendar as exclusions for these courses or the transfer credit courses. If you enrol in any of these courses, the course will be listed as "extra" on your transcript and will not count towards your degree.

Unspecified transfer credit: A course that has no exact equivalency in the Faculty. For example, CHM1**Y represents an unspecified first year credit in Chemistry. Unspecified credits may be used to meet prerequisite, program or breadth requirements as long as permission is obtained from the relevant Program Advisor or the Office of the Registrar.

Generic transfer credit: A course for which no equivalent discipline exists. For example, HUM – Humanities, LNG – Language, SCI – Science, SSC – Social Science.

Distribution Requirements: To qualify for a degree, students must complete at least 1.0 credit from each of the following divisions: Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences. Distribution requirements are noted for each course (where applicable) with the following codes:

  • HUM = Humanities
  • SSc = Social Sciences
  • SCI = Sciences

Refer to the UTM Calendar for more information.

Subjects not listed above may still be considered for transfer credit. The University of Toronto Mississauga reserves the right to change transfer credit policies without notice.
