Transfer Credit Evaluation

After a student has been accepted to Manor College, we will perform a transfer-credit evaluation of any college-level course work completed at previous institutions. Typically, in order for a course to be accepted in transfer, it must meet the following criteria:

  • The course was passed with a “C” (2.0) or higher
  • The course is comparable to those offered in the student’s selected program of study at Manor
  • All official, post-secondary transcripts have been submitted to Manor College Admissions

These courses will be evaluated on an individual basis. If courses are accepted for transfer, only the credit is transferred and grades for these courses are not calculated into the cumulative GPA at Manor. Manor can accept a maximum of 9 credits towards a certificate program provided that these courses are applicable to the selected program of study at Manor.
