Credit Transfer

Credits earned on study abroad programs must be transferred in order for them to appear on your Queen's transcript. To transfer credit to Queen’s for courses taken at the host university, a final grade equivalent to at least “C” (63%) on the Queen’s University Grading Scale must be obtained in each course, unless otherwise stated on the ILOP. Transfer credit(s) and not the grade(s) achieved are recorded on the Queen’s transcript with a notation of “TR”. Grades obtained are not included in the Queen’s Grade Point Average (GPA). 

When you have completed your study abroad program, you should arrange with the host university to have your transcript sent directly (with official seal) to:

International Programs Office
B206 Mackintosh-Corry Hall
Queen's University
Kingston, ON
K7L 3N6

Please note that unless otherwise specified, host universities will not send out transcripts automatically and it is your responsibility to ensure that our office receives a copy.

Upon receipt of your transcript, the IPO will prepare your Statement of International Transfer Credits.

You will be contacted when your Statement of International Transfer Credits is available. Owing to the large volume of email, inquiries about the status of your Statement of International Transfer Credits will not be replied to.
