Transfer Courses

The BScN degrees are very structured in terms of the courses you will take once admitted to the program, but there are a few courses that you could potentially receive transfer credit for from your previous postsecondary education. Once admitted to the Faculty of Nursing, transcripts are assessed and students are notified via the Bear Tracks Transfer Credit Report if they have received transfer credit for any courses. Please note that obtaining transfer credit will not shorten the length of your program, but you will have a lighter course load in certain terms. 

If you believe you should have received credit for a course that is not indicated in your Bear Tracks Transfer Credit Report, please contact the Faculty of Nursing Undergraduate Office.

Students already in the Faculty of Nursing should complete a Letter of Permission before enrolling in off-campus courses.  Students who are seeking admission to the Faculty of Nursing should ensure they submit transcripts from all postsecondary institutions attended in order to receive transfer credit. 

The Alberta Transfer Guide also provides information about the transferability of courses between postsecondary institutions in the province of Alberta.
