Transfer Credits

Kaneff Centre

We generally accept transfer credits from credit courses offered by other recognized post-secondary institutions, where the course content is equivalent to the UTM course. Detailed instructions will be included in your offer of admission package.

Course Equivalencies

For studies at Canadian institutions, students can access Transfer Explorer, U of T's database of previously assessed transfer credit equivalencies.

For information on articulation agreements between UTM and several Ontario colleges, please visit our College Pathways website.

Before You Apply for Transfer Credit

Do not apply for transfer credit if:

And remember, only apply for transfer credit after you've received your offer of admission.

Transfer Credit Application Process

1. Pay for transfer credit assessment

Once you receive your offer of admission, go to the Transfer Credit Online Application and submit payment of the $30 assessment fee. Alternatively, you may pay via debit or credit card in person at the Office of the Registrar. This fee is mandatory and must be paid to initiate your transfer credit assessment.

2. Submit official course outlines (syllabi)

Detailed course outlines are necessary for students to receive an accurate and complete assessment. A detailed course outline should include: the course objectives, the number of credit hours, the length of the course, the grading scheme, a week-to-week topic summary, a reading list (i.e. required textbooks), and a breakdown of essays, tests, and exams.

Submissions are made electronically via email: transfer.utm@utoronto.ca (Word Documents or PDF files only). Alternatively, hard copies may be mailed, couriered, or delivered in person to the address below.

3. Official English translations

Official English translations must accompany official transcripts and course outlines issued in a language other than English.

4. Have your previous institution(s) mail us your final official transcripts

If your official, final transcripts have not yet been received by Enrolment Services, please arrange for your academic institution to send them directly to UTM's Records & Transfer Credit Office. Have the institution send your transcripts to:

Records & Transfer Credit Office | Office of the Registrar
Room 1235, Innovation Complex
University of Toronto Mississauga
