Laddering opportunities

Students who graduate with the CAFM Diploma and a minimum grade of 65% (C+) in each course will be able to apply for admission to the Bachelor of Business Administration (on campus), Bachelor of Commerce (online) or Bachelor of Public Administration (online) at TRU.

These degrees are all 40 courses (120 credits) in length. Students admitted under an AFOA-TRU articulation agreement will be given advanced standing for 17 courses (51 credits) and can complete any of the degrees with just 23 additional courses (69 credits).

Also, any courses completed at other post-secondary institutions that were not used to meet the requirements of the AFOA Diploma can be assessed for additional transfer credit at the time of admission.

TRU residency requirements specify that 50% of the credits for the Bachelor of Business Administration (on campus) or 87.5% of the Bachelor of Commerce (online) or the Bachelor of Public Administration (online) may be transferred from another college or institution including credits transferred on the basis of the CAFM Diploma.
