Thinking of transferring schools or programs? Looking to upgrade your credentials after graduation? How do you make sure your previous studies get recognized so you can take the course credits you’ve already earned with you?

The transfer process can be tough to navigate. But you’re not alone. Over 60,000 post-secondary students transfer or upgrade their credentials every year in Ontario. And many of them use to find the information they need about transfer options, connect to transfer specialists across the province, and maximize the number of transfer credits they receive for their previous studies.

Getting help with the transfer process is a free online service funded by the Government of Ontario that provides students with up-to-date information on transfer policies, grade and credit requirements, and admissions contacts for Ontario’s publicly-funded colleges, universities, and Indigenous Institutes. The website provides an overview of how transfer works, how to explore your options, and what you’ll need to kick-start the process.

So, whether you’re thinking of transferring because your current school or program isn’t a good fit or because you’re looking to increase your employability and long-term career opportunities with additional post-secondary credentials, you shouldn’t have to walk your transfer journey alone.
