Am I eligible?

To be eligible for credit transfer at Durham College, you must first accept an offer of admission to the program you’re interested in transferring credits toward. As the process is self-driven, students will need to determine which courses they would like to apply for transfer.

A student may submit the following types of course(s) for transfer:

  • Core Course: Develops proficiency in specific applied skills in field of study.
  • General Education Elective (GNED XXXX): Employers value graduates who have an understanding of the world beyond their field of study.  To help develop this knowledge, students complete general education (GNED) courses designed to strengthen critical analysis, problem solving, and communication skills.
  • Breadth: Provides students in degree programs the opportunity to gain knowledge and an understanding of disciplines outside of their main field of study, resulting in graduates who can contribute thoughtfully, creatively and positively to their community and their workplaces.
  • FNMI (FMNI XXXX): In response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action 62 to 65, Durham College has embedded mandatory First Nations, Métis, and Inuit general education elective courses in some of its programs. Students will have the opportunity to select from one of four courses where they will explore a variety of topics including First Nations, Métis, and Inuit histories, culture and national issues. More information about FMNI electives can be found here.

Students should review their Program of Study to determine which course(s) they may be eligible for. To view the courses in your program, please visit the links below and search the “courses” tab:
