Deadlines for Transfer Credit Requests

In order to ensure requests can be assessed prior to registration, requests and all supporting documentation should be submitted as early as possible, but no later than:




April 1


September 15


January 15

Requests and official transcripts/documents submitted after these deadlines will still be processed, but are not guaranteed to be processed prior to registration for term of entry.

Official Transcripts: An official transcript must be forwarded in a sealed envelope directly from the issuing institution to KPU, or via electronic transcript exchange service where applicable.  Many institutions are able to provide English translations of transcripts in addition to transcripts in the official language of the home country. If this is not possible, BC Certified Translations may be required.  Refer to the Official Transcripts information in the Admissions Guide.

Course Outlines: Some courses have not been previously evaluated by our faculty and will either indicate unassigned credit or no equivalent in your Transfer Credit Evaluation Summary. You may request to have these courses evaluated by submitting course outlines to Course outlines must include the following information: Comprehensive description of material covered, number of hours of instruction per week, length of semester, texts used and grading profile for each course. The outlines must also be from the year and/ or semester in which the courses were taken and must be supplied by the institution. Please note that calendar descriptions are not sufficient for evaluation.
