Transfer Student Requirements

University Transfer Students

Applicants who have completed 15 credits or more at another post-secondary institution with CGPA of 2.0 or higher may be considered for Transfer Student Status. Such students must submit official transcripts of all post-secondary studies as well as official high school transcripts. Once you have submitted all required documents, along with an application for admission, the Office of the Registrar will complete a transfer evaluation to determine transferability of your previous post-secondary studies.

Transfer credits are determined on a case-by-case basis with the following considerations:

  • Transfer credit towards Ambrose programs may be granted in accordance with College transfer credit policies.
  • A student who has post-secondary studies with a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0, or who is on Academic Probation from the previous institution, may apply for admission on the basis of Dean’s Recommendation.
  • A student who has been required to withdraw from the previous institution for academic reasons is not permitted to register until one year has elapsed from the date the student was required to withdraw.

Ambrose University is a member of the Alberta Council on Admissions and Transfer (ACAT). ACAT publishes the transfer agreements that member institutions negotiate with each other in the annual Alberta Transfer Guide. These agreements specify how courses will be accepted for credit by the partner institutions in ACAT.
