IV. Admission Information

Advanced Standing Admission

2. Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology

Graduates from appropriate programs may be considered for admission with advanced standing in accordance with the following policy:

  1. Transfer credits are determined by the Admissions Committee of the program to which the student is admitted. Acceptance of an offer of admission implies acceptance of credit assessment completed by the Admissions Committee.

  2. Transfer credits will be based on courses completed at a CAAT with a grade of 'B' or better, where those courses are deemed appropriate to the program to which the student is admitted at this University. A minimum overall average of 'B' is required in CAAT diploma programs for consideration of any transfer credit.

  3. Up to 10.00 credits (equivalent of two full-time years of study) may be granted to students from a 'recognized' three-year diploma program, and up to 5.00 credits may be granted to students from a 'recognized' two-year diploma program. Recognized diploma programs, are defined as those with a close affinity in subject matter to the program applied for at the University of Guelph-Humber (i.e. Business diploma for applicants to our BBA program).

  4. Should a student transfer to a different program after admission to the University of Guelph-Humber, credits assigned upon admission will be re-assessed where deemed appropriate by the Admissions Committee of the program.

  5. The normal standard for admission of College Diploma graduates is a 75% cumulative average.
