    Transfer Opportunities

Transfer Within

  • Transferring within Lambton College

    Many of the programs offered at Lambton College allow students to transfer into one directly from another without losing time or credits. 

    We understand that once you start sitting in classes and experiencing the program, it sometimes makes you rethink your pathway.

    Or, you may like your program so much, that you want to build upon what you've learned - we also have transfers that allow you to complete a portion of a second program if you've already received a certificate or diploma.

    See our list of program types that allow a seamless transfer within the Lambton College program offerings:


    Pre-programs are preparatory programs that allow you to either acquire the necessary pre-requisites or the entrance marks needed to apply to other college programs or you can also use these programs to gain more confidence and to better prepare academically for a diploma program.

    The preparatory programs Lambton College offers include:

    Students who take these programs are often better prepared for other college diploma programs and they may also receive some transfer credit which could potentially lighten their course load.

    Common First Years & Transferrable Credits

    Many programs at Lambton College have a common first year or credits that easily transfer to other programs. This allows students to complete the a first year or even a portion of a program and then choose the path you feel best suits your future endeavours - without back tracking or going through the application process again.
