Take a Course at Another Institution
Sometimes, you can take a course at another institution and have it count toward your current studies. This is sometimes called "transferring back" a course or credit.
Transferring back your courses can allow you to:
- explore different institutions and campuses;
- learn if your current institution has an equivalent course before applying; and
- combine studies from different institutions.
Follow these steps to discover your options.
- Start by entering a course code at your current institution—this is the course you want to get credit for. In other words, this is the course you want to 'replace' with another course at another institution.
- Hit 'Find Transferrable Courses.'
- You will be brought to another screen. Your search results may show you a list of courses at other institutions. These courses will count as 'course credits' for your current studies.
Note: Be sure to follow your institution's rules. You must request official approval from your current institution (often in the form of a 'Letter of Permission'). You must do this before applying to study a course at another institution.
Note: The search results you see are provided directly by colleges, universities, and Indigenous Institutes. Not all courses will have results available. Please contact your institution for further inquiry.
