A minimum final grade of ‘II’ or “I” is required to be considered for transfer credit.

In order to receive credit, your final results (Certifying Statement of Results) must be sent to Enrolment Services directly from the Caribbean Examinations Council by August 16, 2019.

If you wish to decline or forfeit the transfer credits awarded to you, you must email utsc.hstransfercredit@utoronto.ca no later than October 31, 2019. The option to forfeit is only available to students who have not attended another post-secondary institution. Once forfeited, transfer credits cannot be reinstated.

4

If you choose to forfeit transfer credit given for a course for which you were awarded two half credits, you must forfeit both half credits.

 

TERMS DEFINED

 

Exclusion: U of T courses in which you may not enrol unless you forfeit the transfer credit.  In addition, you may not enrol in any courses that are listed in the UTSC Calendar as exclusions for these courses or the transfer credit courses. If you enrol in any of these courses, the course will be listed as “extra” on your transcript and will not count towards your degree.

Unspecified transfer credit: A course that has no exact equivalency in the Faculty.  For example, CHMA**H represents an unspecified first year credit in Chemistry.  Unspecified credits may be used to meet prerequisite, program or breadth requirements as long as permission is obtained from the relevant Program Supervisor.

Generic transfer credit: A course for which no equivalent discipline exists.  For example, HUM – Humanities, LGG – Language, SCI – Science, SSC – Social Science.

Breadth Requirement: Of the 20 credits required to complete a degree, at least one half-credit must come from each of the following five breadth categories (Refer to the UTSC Calendar for more information):

  • Arts, literature and language (Arts)
  • History, philosophy and cultural studies (HisPhil)
  • Social and behavioural sciences (SocBeh)
  • Natural sciences (NatSci)
  • Quantitative reasoning (Quant)

Subjects not listed below may still be considered for transfer credit. The University of Toronto Scarborough reserves the right to change transfer credit policies without notice.
