Articulation Agreements

Olds College has developed agreements with other educational institutions to allow for transition to Olds College, or to another institution to continue your education. These formal agreements can make it easier to transfer from one educational institution to another. Agreements do not guarantee admission for students, but rather indicate if admitted, how many credits will transfer from one institution to another. Thus reducing time to completion and cost.

If transferring to Olds College, all applicants must submit an application and pay the application fee. Seats are filled on a first qualified, first admitted basis. If transferring out of Olds College, it is recommended to communicate directly with the institution you plan on attending to confirm admission requirements, transfer credits and course planning.

Please review our program articulation agreements below for further information.

A further resource to search course transfer credit options is the Transfer Alberta website. (link to  http://transferalberta.alberta.ca/transfer-alberta-search/#/searchTypeStep). If you are unable to find the information you are looking for, please contact the institution you wish to transfer to for more information.
