Transfer Students

Students who are seeking admission to Brandon University (BU) following attendance at another accredited post-secondary institution will have their academic records automatically assessed for transfer credit upon acceptance.

High school students with International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP) courses may be eligible for transfer credit, acceptance of which is voluntary. Students must complete a request form to receive credit for IB or AP courses.

The Course Transfer Database has a listing of all courses that have been evaluated for credit by BU in the past five years.  If a course from an accredited institution does not appear in the database, then it could be evaluated by BU faculty for potential credit.

Transfer credit assessment can take up to twelve weeks or longer to complete.  We encourage you to apply early for the term you wish to attend.
