Admissions Requirements: Transfer Students

York is a leader in credit transfer opportunities and student mobility

More than 6,000 transfer students join York each year and we’re proud to offer multiple pathways for those wishing to enhance their studies with further university education. We have been offering other groups of transfer students comprehensive transfer credit consideration for almost 20 years; in fact, we’re one of the first universities to do so.

We’re committed to helping you navigate the transfer process and to ensuring that you receive a fair and timely assessment of your transfer credits. We do this by reviewing each your postsecondary studies to determine how much transfer credit you will be awarded, so that when you meet with your academic advisor you can make informed choices for your study plan.

Find out how many transfer credits you may be eligible for with ONCAT’s new Course-to-Course Transfer Guide (C2CE). Just input your transcript information and the database with search for course equivalencies across 24 of Ontario’s colleges and universities.

Alternatively, if you’re a current York student interested in taking courses at another institution, C2CE can help you find transferable courses – or courses that may count toward your degree at York. is an unofficial guide to how courses transfer from one institution to another.
