Transferring credits across Canada
Transfer credits allow you to use previous educational experience gained toward a new credential at a different institution. That means, for example, that you can take some credits at Yukon College and then transfer those credits to a program at another university or college, allowing you to complete your program requirements more quickly.
There are three ways to transfer your Yukon College credits.
1. Provincial Transfer Agreements
Yukon College is an approved member of both the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) and the Alberta Council on Admissions and Transfer (ACAT). These transfer systems allow most credits at Yukon College to be transferred to any public university or college in BC or Alberta. For detailed information on where you can transfer YC credits, please see the BC Transfer Guide and the Alberta Transfer Guide.
2. Block transfer
Yukon College has block transfer agreements with other institutions, allowing you to transfer all of the credits from your YC program, as a block, to a program at another college or university. Check with your YC program advisor for block transfer options.
3. Individual course transfer
Colleges and universities across Canada (and around the world) will generally give you credit for courses taken at Yukon College. The type of transfer credit you receive will be determined by the Registrar at the institution to which you’re applying. If you run into problems transferring any YC course, contact the appropriate YC school chair for advice and assistance.
Yukon College also has a dual admission agreement with Thompson Rivers University in the areas of Liberal Arts, Science and Business Administration. For complete information, please see the informational PDF and application form.
