UCN creates pathways for Canadian college graduates

May 10, 2017

Students with certificates or diplomas from public Canadian colleges will have the ability to transfer their credits into an Arts degree offered by University College of the North. The agreement will see college students with a 3.0 grade point average or higher become eligible to transfer up to 15 credits for a certificate, 30 credits for a 2-year diploma, and 45 credits for a 3-year diploma in any of UCN’s 3-year and 4-year Arts degree options. “Similar to arrangements in other provinces, this block transfer plan allows certificate and diploma graduates new opportunities to continue their education at UCN and more efficiently complete a degree,” said Harvey Briggs, Dean of UCN's Faculty of Arts, Business, and Science. “Students will be able to customize academic credentials to better fit their career paths, giving them additional advantages in the labour market.” UCN | NationTalk
