Find out how to get post-secondary credit when transferring between provinces
Getting Credit in Alberta
Transfer your learning to an Alberta post-secondary institution to complete your higher education. Find out how Alberta institutions assess your out-of-province education for transfer credit.
How Interprovincial Transfer Works
Transferring your post-secondary education from another province works on the same principles as transfer within Alberta, except that students are responsible for providing their own high school and post-secondary transcripts.
Transferring Between Institutions
The transfer process involves three steps:
Apply to the institution you wish to transfer to.
As part of your application, order a transcript from the post-secondary institution that you're transferring from (official transcripts are usually sent directly between institutions at your request).
If the receiving institution admits you, your transcript will be evaluated for transfer credit, however, additional information, like course outlines (syllabi) may be required.
Transferring Apprenticeship Training or Certification
If you received apprenticeship or pre-apprenticeship training in another province or territory, you can use it to further your education anywhere in the country. The Apprentice Mobility Protocol ensures your technical training, work experience and examination results are recognized by other provinces and territories. The Protocol also increases your ability to pursue jobs anywhere in Canada without interrupting your training.
