If you wish to take a course offered at another institution to be used as credit towards your University of Calgary degree, or to conduct research at another institution that pertains to your degree, you must first obtain approval from your program and the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
If the university you wish to attend does not have an exchange agreement with UCalgary, you will require a Letter of Permission from your graduate program and the program at the other institution.
Students registered in a graduate degree program at the University of Calgary may receive a credit for courses taken at other recognized institutions.
Courses for which transfer credit is sought must be:
- from a recognized institution and not have been used for any degree or diploma accreditation
- graduate level courses, with a graded level of performance equivalent to a “B” or higher standing on the University of Calgary grade scale
Receiving credit for courses completed elsewhere
Students must arrange for official transcripts showing the courses taken and the grades achieved, to be sent directly from the other institution to the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of Calgary.
Note: Transfer credit and any advanced credit received upon entrance to the program, combined, may not exceed one third of the program or two full-course equivalents (whichever is less).
