What is a Transfer Credit

Transfer Credits

Transfer credits are courses completed at other accredited institutions that are assessed, and when granted, may be used toward Ryerson University degree requirements.

How does it impact me?

Accepted transfer credits impact your program curriculum, allowing you to avoid repeating coursework and graduate sooner.
