University credit for CEGEP

If you have completed more than one year of the D.E.C. you may receive university credit at Dalhousie. To view CEGEP work that has been assessed for transfer credit in the past, visit our Transfer Credit Equivalencies Table. If any of your courses are not listed on the Transfer Credit Equivalencies Table we may ask for a translated course description or course outline / syllabus. On receipt, we will review the class for possible transfer credit. To receive credit you need:

  • to have confirmed your offer
  • final course grade of 60% or higher
  • the course to be equivalent to one offered at Dalhousie
  • the course to apply to your intended program of study
  • to be within the time period to transfer to Dalhousie

If you completed any of your classes outside the time period to transfer to Dal, you will be required to request that these courses count towards your program.

Once our assessment is complete we will let you know which of your CEGEP courses transfer to your new program. You should arrange for translated transcripts with final grades to be sent to the Registrar's Office as soon as they are available.
