Undergraduate students, transfer to Emily Carr University and bring your course credits with you.
If you are an academic, fine art, design, or media arts-based student with credits earned from another post-secondary institution, you may be able to transfer into a program at Emily Carr University.
We welcome university-level transfer applicants from a variety of post-secondary institutions in addition to our partners listed below. Second and third year undergraduate transfer applicants will be considered on a space-availability basis. It is important to plan ahead as some Emily Carr University majors seldom have space for transfer applicants.
If you are a Foundation Year applicant to Emily Carr University, and you possess previous studies, please submit those official transcripts with your Foundation application. Your official transcripts will be reviewed for transfer credit that will fit your desired major.
As a transfer student, you must:
- follow the standard application process outlined in the How to Apply guidelines;
- follow standard submission of Transcripts and English Proficiency procedures;
- submit a distinctive Transfer Student Portfolio as detailed on the Portfolio Requirements page.*
Before you proceed through the application process, please use the information below to review the institutions with which we currently have transfer, partnership, and articulation agreement, and to understand the academic requirements for transferring students to Emily Carr University.
*If you are applying to transfer to the Bachelor of Fine Arts, Visual Arts majors, you may qualify for exemption from the requirement for portfolio submission based on your GPA academic standing. Details are below.
