Transfer Credit

Transfer credit is academic credit granted by TRU for courses taken at post-secondary institutions you attended before TRU. Please note that transfer credit is optional. If you prefer to do all course work required for your TRU program at TRU, you do not need to request transfer credit.

Two types of documents are needed before you can receive transfer credit:

  1. Official transcripts from your previous institution(s), along with individual mark sheets and proof of graduation, if applicable
  2. Detailed syllabus (course outline) for individual courses in your previous program, if the course has not transferred to TRU in the past.

Admissions or Advising staff can help with identifying which courses require outlines.

To apply for transfer credit, please send an email request to after you have submitted your documents to International Admissions. Web links to course outlines or scanned outlines can be included in your email. ALWAYS include your T-ID.

When completed, transfer credit will appear in myTRU and on your official TRU transcript.

In myTRU, you will see transfer grades and a transfer average because they facilitate automated prerequisite checking and other functions.

For transcripts that you order to be sent to other institutions (i.e. official transcripts), please note:

Grades for transfer courses do not appear on your official TRU transcript and are not included in the GPA displayed on your official transcript.
