Algoma U adopts new transfer policy for college grads

February 8, 2012

Algoma University's senate has approved a motion to simplify the process by which students with a college diploma have their credentials assessed when applying to the Sault Ste. Marie-based institution. In the past, college students would receive transfer credits based on an evaluation of individual course by course comparisons. The new policy provides direct entry into a degree program, with students with a 3.0 GPA or higher earning either 45 credits (for a 2-year diploma) or 60 credits (for a 3-year diploma) toward their degree.
