TRANSFER COURSES

Submitted by darmstro on Fri, 09/16/2016 - 10:23am

I’ve been admitted to a Degree Program at UCalgary from another university/college, where can I find out how my courses transferred?

Login to MyUofC and look under the “Academics” section for a drop-down menu. From the drop-down menu, select “Transfer Credit Report” and click on the “>>” arrows next to it.
The UofC equivalent to your course, if present, will be found under the Equivalent Course column. Note that courses which transfer as 2XX, 3XX, 4XX, or 5XX are undesignated which means that although the units for such courses will count towards the total units needed to graduate, they will not meet specific Psychology degree requirements. So, a course which transferred as Psyc 3XX, cannot be substituted for a specific PSYC course required by the major, such as PSYC 375.

Want to get your Psyc course re-evaluated? See:

I’m a transfer student, how can I find out what my remaining requirements are or how my college/university courses will be counted towards my degree?

I’ve been admitted to a Degree Program at UCalgary but my college/university Psyc course transferred over to UofC as an undesignated course (i.e., 2XX, 3XX, 4XX, 5XX), can I get my course re-evaluated so that I can use it towards my Psyc degree or as a course prerequisite?

First, you must check the Alberta Transfer Guide to see if your course is already listed. If your course is from one of the institutions listed in the guide and has equivalence, your course will not be re-evaluated by us.

If your course is from an institution not listed in the Alberta Transfer Guide and you believe that your Psyc course merits further consideration, contact the Psychology Department.

Note: You will be required to provide detailed course outlines for each course under consideration and such outlines need to be from the term (semester) in which you originally took the course. So, if you took Psyc 123 in fall of 2006, your outline needs to be from Fall 2006. You may need to contact the Psyc department of your previous institution to obtain these. For an example of a course outline, please see our Courses web page.

I’ve been admitted to a Degree Program at UCalgary but my college/university Bio/Chem/Phys/Math courses transferred over to UofC as an undesignated course (i.e., 2XX, 3XX, 4XX, 5XX), can I get my course re-evaluated so that I can use it towards my Psyc degree?

  • If your course is listed in the Guide, your course will not be re-evaluated in terms of how it transfers to UofC. However, we may still allow the course to be used in lieu of a major requirement.

    You will need to provide the Psychology Department with a copy of your course outline from the term (semester) in which you originally took the course. So, if you took Chem 123 in fall of 2006, your outline needs to be from Fall 2006. See our Courses web page for example course outlines.

 

  • If your course is not listed in the Guide, your first step should be to compare your course outline with that of the UofC course you feel is equivalent to see if it is a close match. For instance, a chemistry course taken at college or university which was equivalent to high school chemistry will not receive equivalence with a junior chemistry course at UofC. Departments will post course outlines on their website. See UofC’s Departments and Programs page for a complete A-Z listing of all departments.

    If you feel your course is a suitable alternative after comparing the outlines, you will need to directly contact the department offering the UofC equivalent and request that they evaluate your course for potential equivalency. So, for example, if you took Chem 123, and feel that it is equivalent to UofC’s CHEM 201, you will need to contact the undergraduate advisor for UofC’s Chemistry department and request an evaluation of your coursework.

    You will need to provide them with a copy of your transcript, your full name and UCID (student number), and course outlines for each course under consideration from the term (semester) in which you took the course(s). You MUST request that they send the Department of Psychology a direct email of their evaluation to the following email address: psycugrd@ucalgary.ca
