Articulations & Agreements

University and College Transfers can be completed on a course-by-course basis or a program-by-program basis. When admitted into an Olds College Government approved program, all students with previous post-secondary educational experience will be assessed for course-by-course transfer credit.

If you have questions regarding transfer credit, please contact us. Please be aware that at this time, Olds College is unable to provide transfer assessments at an inquiry level. Olds College has developed transfer agreements with other educational institutions, allowing for a smoother transition for Olds College graduates or graduates from other institutions.

It is always recommended to communicate directly with the institution you plan on attending to confirm transfer agreement information.

Contact your Institution

If you are planning to attend an institution other than those with whom Olds College has an identified transfer agreement, you should contact the institution you wish to transfer to as early as possible to discuss admission requirements, transfer credit and course planning. Please be aware that you are responsible for ensuring that your registration is complete and appropriate and that your course choices comply with the transfer program to which you intend to apply. Acceptance into an Olds College program does not guarantee admittance into a university transfer program. 

*if transferring to Olds College, all students must submit an application and pay the application fee. Seats are filled on a first qualified, first registered basis. It is the applicants responsibility to apply in a timely manner.
