Internal Transfers

Applicants who wish to transfer to the Faculty of Arts and Science from another Faculty, School or Distance Studies at Queen’s University may apply to transfer as Internal Transfer students for 2015-16. Transfer students must meet the admission requirements for the Faculty and specific departmental criteria, however, meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission.  Since space is limited, we encourage students to apply early.

How it works

Applicants must apply through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) for admission to on-campus study in the Faculty of Arts and Science. 

A student’s previous academic record from another Faculty, School or Distance Studies at Queen’s continues to be relevant in assessing his or her admission to, and performance in, the Faculty of Arts and Science. In particular, the Cumulative GPA will be calculated on all courses attempted during the student’s Undergraduate Career at Queen’s and will be utilized when assessing admission, academic progression, prerequisites and any other purpose specified under the Academic Regulations.

Should an applicant have completed 132.0 or more units prior to admission to the Faculty of Arts and Science or subsequently complete 132.0 or more units, and have a GPA of less than 1.90, they shall be:

  1. deemed ineligible to proceed to an honours degree; and
  2. will be restricted to General Degree only

What's possible?

Due to enrollment pressure, not all Faculty of Arts and Science departments are able to accommodate transfer students. Please note that some degree Plan's admission averages and departmental requirements are higher than the minimums stated by the Faculty.  Note that once admitted, upper-year Internal Transfer students will not be permitted to transfer in subsequent years into a degree Plan that was closed to transfer students at the time of admission or that closes subsequently even if they take a qualifying course in the Faculty of Arts and Science and receive a competitive average.

Degree Plans with capacity to accept Internal transfer applicants for the 2015-16 academic year are listed below. If a degree Plan is not listed, it is at capacity and cannot accept transfer applicants.

To inquire about specific admission requirements, contact Michelle Gallant.
