Transfer Resources

The University of Lethbridge is an exceptional choice for continuing your educational pursuits. Regardless of where you are transferring to the University of Lethbridge from, we offer information and resources to assist you in making sure you receive appropriate transfer credit for courses you have taken at other institutions. For information regarding admission requirements please see Post-Secondary Admission Route.

Transfer Credit

Many students are eligible to have some or all previous post-secondary work transferred for credit toward completion of their University of Lethbridge degree. Transfer credit is awarded upon admission to the University of Lethbridge. Detailed course outlines may be required for courses that have not been previously assessed for transfer credit by the University of Lethbridge.

The minimum grade required for a course to be accepted for transfer to the University of Lethbridge is a ‘D’; however, degree and program requirements may differ. As an example, the Bachelor of Management degree requires a minimum grade of ‘C-’ in Statistics 1770; Economics 1010 and Economics 1012; Writing 1000 OR a university English course; and all Management courses in order to meet degree requirements. Unspecified course credit (1xxx, 2xxx, etc.) denotes that the University of Lethbridge does not offer the specific course you transferred in, but we recognize it and treat it as a university-level course. An unspecified course may not meet a specific course requirement. For example, if CHEM 1000 is required in your program, you may not use CHEM 1xxx to fulfill that requirement. Please contact a Student Program Advisor for more information and program planning assistance.
