Transfer Admission Requirements
Students with 27 or more credits transferring in will be admitted solely based on their post-secondary work. A minimum 2.0 is required for admission. For students with fewer than 27 credits transferring in, admission will be based on high school work as well and you will need to meet the high school student admission requirements for your province/state. Students with fewer than 27 credits are considered Freshmen Transfer students at TWU and qualify for Freshmen Academic Scholarships. Need more information on high school admission requirements?
Once we receive your application and high school and post-secondary transcripts, we should be able to give you an admission decision within two weeks. You will also be automatically considered for an Academic Scholarship.
Students transferring from accredited colleges and universities can transfer up to 75 credits to TWU. Students transferring from accredited Bible colleges can transfer in up to 60 credits. Students transferring from Institutes of Technology and Colleges of Applied Arts can transfer in up to 45 credits (with the exception of BCIT, from which students can transfer up to 75 credits). There is no minimum for transfer credit.
Minimum Grades for Transfer Credit
For university and community college courses, transfer credit will be given for all acceptable courses with a passing grade (D or higher).* Transfer credit will be given for acceptable courses at Bible colleges accredited with the ABHE when completed with at least a C- grade (60 per cent). Courses from Institutes of Technology and Colleges of Applied Arts will be considered on a course-by-course basis where a minimum grade of B- has been attained.**
*Note: Some required courses in Business, Education, and Nursing programs require a minimum letter grade above that of a pass. In cases where a lower grade than the minimum required is achieved, general elective credit may be granted and the course must be retaken at TWU to meet graduation requirements.
** Students transferring from BCIT may transfer courses with equivalency if they have a passing grade (no less than a D).
