CS Course Transfer Request


Students who feel they have equivalent experience from a course in another institution may apply for a Course Transfer. The request must include a copy of the proposed transfer course description and outline, and a transcript showing successful completion. Course Transfer requests are only processed once we have received this information. Please allow up to four weeks for processing.

Students can apply for a combined maximum of two course transfers or course challenges per Certificate.


The administration fee for processing a Course Transfer request is $75 per course, payable upon request.
