Students entering Emily Carr having completed courses at a recognized college or university level will be evaluated for transfer credit when an official transcript is received by Student Services. Transfer credit is recorded on the student’s Emily Carr transcript; however, the grades are not calculated in the Emily Carr grade point average.
The Residency Requirement states that the student must complete at least 50% of the degree requirements at Emily Carr. Therefore, the maximum transfer credit permitted towards an Emily Carr degree is 50% of the Emily Carr degree requirements, which is 60 credits towards a 120 credit degree. The maximum is not guaranteed, since only courses which satisfy the degree requirements will be transferred. Usually lower level requirements will be fulfilled prior to upper level requirements. Upper level program specific requirements require explicit departmental approval and are not usually granted.
Practicums, Field Placements, Work Placements, Internships, and/or Coop credits earned at other institutions are not eligible for transfer credit towards Emily Carr degree programs.
