Transfer credit is a formal learning assessment that awards credit at one recognized post-secondary educational institution (pdf) for courses completed at another, or at the same institution between varying programs and schools.
Potential transfer credit is based on
- recognized transfer agreements between NAIT and other post-secondary institutions
- an individual basis if there is no pre-existing agreement
- fit to the new program
Note: Transfer credit options vary over time and are subject to change. Please see the Alberta Learning Information Service’s TransferAlberta website to ensure you have the most up-to-date information.
NAIT Transfer Credit Guidelines
Before submitting a Request for Transfer Credit or Credential Recognition (pdf), you must have been accepted into a NAIT credit program and paid the non-refundable tuition deposit. You should enrol in the courses you want to receive credit for until you receive official confirmation that credit has been received. In addition,
- Credit is granted per course – partial credit will not be granted.
- Credit granted will not exceed that of the NAIT course credit.
- The curriculum of the original course must be a minimum of an 80% match to NAIT course outcomes.
- You can only receive credit for up to 50% of any NAIT credit program.
- Open Studies students are not eligible to apply for advanced credit.
Each program also has other requirements for advanced credit, including
- a maximum time frame since the course completion date
- a minimum mark
See individual About the Program pages for more detailed information.
If you do not qualify for transfer credit, Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) may be an option.
