1. How many transfer courses am I allowed?

Transfer credit assessments are completed as part of the admission process. Students must obtain the approval of the Faculty of Management for authorized study at other universities after admission.

See your Program Planning Guide for more information, but generally:

40-course BMgt - The maximum number of courses you can transfer into a 40-course program is 20 or 60.0 credit hours.

Post-Diploma BMgt - Students with approved diplomas who are admitted to a Post-Diploma Bachelor of Management degree receive block credit for 20 courses or 60.0 credit hours.

2nd degree BMgt - Second degree students do not need to transfer courses. Courses that are transferrable to the U of L will be waived from the program.

Certificates - A maximum of five of the 10 required courses can be transferred in.

2. How will my courses transfer to the U of L?

Courses not listed in the U of L's Transfer Credit Equivalencies Database will need to be assessed for equivalency. See Transfer Student Admission Route website for more information.

3. How long will it take to have my potential transfer courses evaluated?

It can take several months to have your course syllabi evaluated for transfer. Please refer to the Transfer Student Admission Route website for more information.

4. Can I take courses at another university (visiting student authorization) and transfer them back to U of L?

Students must obtain the approval of the Faculty of Management for authorized study at other universities after admission. Authorized study at another university after admission to the Faculty is called Visiting Student Authorization (VSA). If a Management student takes a course at another institution without approval, transfer credit for that course will not be allowed.

If you feel you have extenuating circumstances that make you eligible for VSA, you should meet with an academic advisor at your campus advising office. See Appeal Letter information sheet. Please also refer to the Visiting Student Authorization information sheet for more information.
