Transfer Credit On-Admission (Newly Admitted Transfer Students)

Please Follow these Seven Steps:

  1. Complete the transfer credit application and make payment (below)

    Once you receive your offer of admission, complete the application and submit the $30.00 transfer credit assessment fee on our secure site. This fee is mandatory and must be paid to initiate your transfer credit assessment.

    Note: Transfer credit assessment priority will be given to students who have accepted their U of T Scarborough Offer of Admission. The transfer credit application fee is non-refundable.

  2. Upload or Email official course outlines (syllabi)

    Courses taken outside of Canada: Submission of detailed course outlines is mandatory for courses taken outside of Canada. Official English translation must accompany official transcript and course outlines issued in a language other than English. Detailed syllabi should include (but is not limited to): textbook information, reading list, week to week topic breakdown, course evaluation, lab component (if applicable) and tutorial hours (if applicable).

    Courses taken at Canadian institutions: Transfer Credit Assessors may require detailed course outlines for courses taken at Canadian institutions. If course syllabi are necessary, you will be contacted directly.

    You will have the opportunity to upload the course syllabi with the completion of the application below.

  3. Submit official final transcript(s) (where your admission conditions require)

    Transcripts from institutions within Ontario must be submitted electronically via OUAC. Hardcopy transcripts for institutions in Ontario received by Admissions & Student Recruitment will not be accepted. Transcripts from institutions outside of Ontario must be sent directly from the issuing institution to the Office of Admissions & Student Recruitment at U of T Scarborough. We do not accept copies "issued to students".

    Transcripts submitted for admission purposes will be used for transfer credit assessments. You must provide an official final transcript if new academic information becomes available.

    It is mandatory that you inform us immediately if you are enrolling in summer courses and send your official final transcript when grades are finalized. There is no additional assessment fee for summer courses.

    Electronic submission via Parchment/Naviance:

    Where applicable, transcripts should be sent to:

    Admissions & Student Recruitment (Transfer Credit)
    University of Toronto Scarborough
    Highland Hall, Room 104
    1265 Military Trail
    Toronto, ON M1C 1A4

  4. Ensure that your email address is correct.

    When your transfer credit assessment is complete, the outcome will be sent to the email currently on file with U of T Scarborough.

  5. Review the Transfer Credit Assessment Guide before contacting your transfer credit assessor.

  6. Selecting Courses at U of T Scarborough

    Once you have accepted your offer of admission, you should register for courses at the start of your registration period whether or not transfer credits have been assessed. To avoid enrolling in courses for which you will receive transfer credit, we strongly encourage you to complete a self-assessment. In order to complete a self-assessment, use Transfer Explorer or manually compare course descriptions using our academic calendar. Compare the content of your previous studies with courses offered at U of T Scarborough to ensure that there is no overlap.

    Once your transfer credit is finalized, you may need to adjust your course selection. Consider taking electives outside of your current or intended program of study. If you have any further questions regarding course selection, please contact U of T Scarborough's Academic Advising & Career Centre.

  7. Transfer students have until the end of their first semester at the University of Toronto Scarborough to request a reassessment and/or an amendment.

    The same time limit applies to all department interviews (if applicable) and submission of detailed course outlines (syllabi). If you have questions or concerns about your assessment, please email Where necessary, a written explanation for reassessment or adjustment of a transfer credit decision may be requested.
