Transfer of Credits
Students who have completed credits at another recognized college or university may apply for credit transfer only at the time of initial enrollment.
For transfer credit consideration, a student must submit an application and all transcripts indicating successful completion of relevant coursework with a passing grade of 70 per cent or higher. Students must submit an application for the transfer of credits with their program application (in writing) when they initially apply for acceptance into any program. Students are not permitted to apply for any transfer credits after they have been accepted into any program or after the program begins.
At the Education Director’s discretion, a student may also be required to submit additional course information such as a course description and syllabus.
To be considered for transfer credit, courses must match those offered in the Acupuncture Diploma Program. This is for single courses only – no combined courses. Each transfer course must have its own mark. Approval of a transfer credit is at the discretion of the college.
All deductions from approved transfer credits will lessen tuition costs by $10 per academic hour (i.e. a 45-hour course transfer is eligible for a $450 tuition decrease). Fifteen hours constitutes one credit.
The student must pay a $50 administrative fee per each eligible credit (i.e. a 45-hour course (3 credits) transfer will have a $150 administrative fee).
