Some post-secondary institutions allow students to transfer credits for academic work completed at another institution. Each institution has their own policies for transferring credits including what the institution accepts as course equivalencies, a list of formally recognized credits that they will consider transferring from partner institutions across Canada, and an application process.

Students who are already working toward a program, certificate, or credential and want to take a course from another institution may need a letter of permission from their home institution to ensure they receive credit.
The institution will evaluate all applications and determine if they will grant a credit transfer. If you are not granted a credit transfer by an institution, it may be because:
- A course may not fit the unique program offered by the institution;
- Institutions may require a number of courses for the program be completed at the institution;
- Some academic units require a minimum grade in order to grant the credit; or
- Some academic units will not grant a credit for courses completed several years prior.
