First of all, welcome to CapU! If you're thinking of transferring your credits to study here, there are a few factors to consider before submitting your application. Learn more below.

Factors to consider for transfer students

Transfer credit is coursework completed from another school, college, or university that may count towards your Capilano University program. If you are admitted to Capilano University and have already completed courses at another post-secondary school, you can apply to use the credits you have earned to fulfil some of the requirements for your credential.

For more information about the transfer credit process, visit Transfer Credit.

Check the BC Transfer Guide to find out course equivalencies between Capilano University and other post-secondary institutions.

If your courses are taken from out of province, or international institution these will need to be assessed by our university.

  1. Your transfer credit will be assessed by an admissions officer when you're admitted to the university if your courses are listed in the BC Transfer Guide.
  2. The Admissions department will confirm your transfer credit by sending an email to your myCapU Email account.
  3. Once the email arrives, book an appointment with an academic advisor. At your appointment the advisor will help you fill out a program planner, taking into account your transfer credits.

To learn more, go to Transfer Credit.

Effective Fall 2019, 50% of your program requirements must be completed at Capilano University. Some programs may have additional residency requirements.

For more information, refer to the University Calendar.
