Transfer students need to have completed the courses required for admission to any program.
Upon admission, completed post-secondary credit courses will be considered for transfer credit on a course-by-course basis for eligible post-secondary work. The number of courses considered to be transferable in the context of the admission decision may or may not coincide with the number of courses ultimately awarded transfer credit. For additional information, see Transfer Credit.
The University of Lethbridge does not award transfer credit on the basis of Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition.
Applicants who hold certificate credentials from credit programs at recognized post-secondary institutions may be eligible to receive transfer credit upon admission (see Transfer Credit).
Calculating Admission GPA
All transferable post-secondary work completed by Post-Secondary applicants, as indicated on transcripts, will be used in determining admission eligibility. Upon admission, completed courses will be considered for transfer credit on a course-by-course basis for eligible post-secondary work in accordance with program and residence requirements. The number of courses considered to be transferable in the context of the admission decision may or may not coincide with the number of courses ultimately awarded transfer credit. For additional information, see Transfer Credit.
When necessary for the purposes of calculating the admission GPA and awarding transfer credit, Student Enrolment and Registrar Services (SEARS) will convert grades to the University of Lethbridge 4.00 GPA scale.
