Transfer Credit

Many Saskatchewan Polytechnic students benefit from transferring credit.

Transfer Credit is the acknowledgement of formal learning from an institution  approved by the Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials (CICIC) towards credential at another recognized institution.

Transfer credit options vary over time; this information is subject to change.

Find out if you can benefit from transferring credit:

  1. Are you coming to Saskatchewan Polytechnic with credits you want Saskatchewan Polytechnic to recognize?
    You must submit all post-secondary transcripts from other institutions
    at the time of application. Failure to do so may result in denied
    transferability.
