ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 6.0  Recognition of Previous Learning (Effective July 12, 2019) 

Granting Block Transfer Credit

The following guidelines are used to establish block credit:

  1. The amount of block credit assigned will be determined by the academic faculty together with the department of Program Planning, Development and Renewal and the Office of the Registrar. Transfer agreements require the approval of the Office of the Senior Vice President, Academic, and must be accompanied by an approved Schedule of Study which follows consultation between the appropriate Academic Senior Dean, Dean of Program Planning, Development and Renewal and Registrar.
  2. A student granted block credit will be assigned credit based on the equivalent number of semesters or courses determined in the approved Schedule of Study. Individual courses will not be listed on the student’s record but will be recorded as “Block” credit.
  3. Credit gained through “Block” credit cannot be used for additional transfer credit in a second credential.
