Transferring Post-Secondary Credits

Students have several options when deciding about their post-secondary studies. These options include transferring post-secondary credits from one institution to another, and using high school credits or past experience towards a post-secondary credit.

1. Transfer Credits

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.

To view credit transfer policies available for the different institutions, please click on the institution links below.

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.

2. Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) is the process of identifying, assessing, and recognizing skills and knowledge acquired through work experience, non-formal training, independent study, volunteering, and hobbies.

If you do not qualify for a credit transfer, but have experiential learning or informal trading, PLAR may be an option.  For more information about PLAR, please contact your post-secondary institution’s academic advisors. To view PLAR policies currently available for the different institutions, please click on the institution links below.

3. Dual Credit

Dual credit courses allow learners to earn high school and post-secondary credits or other program recognition at the same time, in the same course. It enables learners to integrate  high school credits with their personal career paths and complete training in a shorter timeframe for a quicker transition to employment. 

Encouraging student accessibility, mobility, and success

The Saskatchewan Government works collaboratively with post-secondary institutions to promote province-wide coordination on student pathways to support accessibility, mobility and success.

The newly formed Saskatchewan Transfer Credit and Learner Pathway Council is a partnership of credit granting institutions and the Ministry of Advanced Education. The Council encourages and facilitates increased accessibility, student mobility and student academic success by promoting pathways among Saskatchewan’s post-secondary institutions within and outside the province.
