Queen's University may grant Transfer Credits to students coming from a number of different programs. Transfer credit assessment varies depending on the courses or curriculum that the student has completed, the student's scores/grades achieved in that program, the Queen's program that the student is entering, and the student's year of entry to Queen's. Students entering into their first year of study at Queen’s and who have previously taken courses during high school that may be eligible for transfer credit must apply for credit no later than the end of fall term of their first year. Eligible students who do not submit a transfer credit request (and all supporting documents) by the end of first term are considered to have declined credit. Transfer credit requests submitted after fall term of the student’s first year will not be assessed.
Transfer credit assessment varies depending on:

High School Transfer Credits
High school curriculum/student-type categories include:
- Advanced Placement (AP)
- French Baccalauréat (FB)
- General Certificate of Education (GCE) / Advanced Levels
- International Baccalauréat (IB)
Students entering their first year of study at Queen’s who have previously taken courses during high school that may be eligible for transfer credit will automatically be assessed provided the appropriate transcripts were submitted during the application process. In some cases, students must submit a request to have their official results released to Queen’s. No action is required. Transfer credit(s) will be posted to SOLUS by September 15th.
For students in all faculties and schools, a maximum of 18.0 credit units may be granted.
Students who believe they are entitled to additional transfer credits that are not posted to their SOLUS account by September 15th must submit the below transfer credit request (and all supporting documents) by the end of fall term of their first year. Transfer credit requests submitted after fall term of a student’s first year will not be assessed.
College Transfer Credits
University Transfer Credits
Students who have taken post-secondary credit prior to attending Queen’s must disclose this information on the OUAC application form and will be required to submit documentation prior to a final decision on their application. Failure to disclose all post-secondary studies during time of application is considered academic dishonesty and may result in withdrawal from the university.
Transfer credit assessment will take place after a student has accepted their offer of admission.
DEADLINE: Eligible students who do not submit course descriptions (where required) by the end of their first term are considered to have declined credit.
Students in the Faculty of Arts and Science and Smith School of Business
