Post-Secondary Transfers


Transferring From Another University?


We welcome transfer students from other universities and colleges. The path to earning a degree can look many different ways, and for some students, it includes taking courses from more than one institution. If you have taken courses at another post-secondary institution and are interested in continuing your studies at the University of Regina, you may be able to receive credit for the courses you completed in the past.

Transferring institutions can be confusing, and we encourage you to plan ahead. Book an Enrolment Counselling appointment to help make the process easier for you and ensure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision!


We have awards just for post-secondary transfer students! The University of Regina Transfer Student Award ($2000) and the University of Regina Transfer Student Scholarship ($3000) have been created just for our students transferring from another university or college. For more information and the criteria of these awards, click here.

Transfer Credit


Transfer Credit is credit given by the University of Regina for academic work done at other institutions. If you have completed studies at a recognized post-secondary institution, or if you have completed courses within a recognized advanced high school program, you may be eligible to receive credit for courses at the University of Regina. Transfer credit is assessed by the faculty after you are accepted to a program. Additional details on transfer credit can be found here.

A database of courses previously evaluated at the University of Regina is available online here. You may use this database to determine possible course transfer opportunities. However, if a course is not on this list, an equivalency may still be possible. Talk with your Academic Advisor to inquire about your previous course work and how it might fit into your program at the University of Regina.
