#1 in Credit Transferability

College diplomas, degrees and other post-secondary accomplishments will be considered on an individual basis, to ensure that students transferring to Laurentian are given the maximum value for their credits. To help you make the most of your previous educational experience, we have transfer policies and articulation agreements with other institutions. These agreements are designed to provide better student mobility among the partners through formal recognition of credits/programs at each institution. 

For students who have completed a two or three-year diploma at a College of Applied Arts and Technology, Laurentian has many pathway agreements designed to enhance student mobility. If there is not a pathway agreement for your program, Laurentian offers admission with advanced standing as indicated in our credit transfer chart below.
