Transfer Courses

The purpose of a transfer course is to enable students who alter their post secondary plans to transfer from one type of course to another in Grades 10, 11, and 12.

  • Transfer courses are designed to provide the knowledge and skills required to bridge the gap between two courses of different types.
  • In most cases, transfer courses are shorter and more focused than other types of courses, and can be delivered in a variety of ways.
  • Transfer courses will provide partial credits since they require students to demonstrate achievement of new curriculum expectations. The credits earned will qualify as optional credits toward diploma requirements.
  • Transfer courses are not remedial instruction provided to enable students to achieve the curriculum expectations of a course that they have failed to complete successfully; they are designed to adequately prepare students to meet the expectations of a different type of course.
