Great news for college business transfer students
November 26, 2014

Ontario’s 24 colleges have signed the colleges’ first-ever province-wide agreement that grants recognition for entire previous years’ credits when a student in a business diploma program transfers to the same program at another college.

The agreement was announced by Colleges Ontario and the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT).


  • Applies to students in accounting, business administration, human resources and marketing programs

  • Allows students to easily transfer among all college business programs across Ontario

  • Business students who transfer at the end of their first or second year will receive full credit for their completed courses

  • Given the high enrolment of business programs, these pathways provide additional flexibility for a significant number of students

Ontario’s colleges are working to develop similar province-wide agreements for other program areas.
