Transfer Credit Policy (Summary from Senate Policy)
Deans may grant credit for a University of Windsor course in recognition of academic course work completed at another post-secondary institution or recognized organization provided that the course work completed is deemed to be equivalent, consistent with the Senate approved Course Equivalency Policy.
If the work completed is not equivalent to a specific University of Windsor course but constitutes a general body of knowledge in a discipline, a credit may be awarded for an unspecified course at the appropriate level.
Students who feel that their prior academic work is undervalued must appeal their evaluation to the Dean, through the Office of the Registrar, within two terms after admission to their program of study. The decision of the Dean on the appeal is final.
The granting of advanced standing by transfer credit reduces the total number of courses a student must complete for a degree, thereby giving the student advanced standing in a program. The mechanism by which students may obtain advanced standing include:

  • By block transfer credit (e.g., transfer by articulation agreement and transfer by degree completion program)
  • By an assessment of Advanced Placement (AP) credentials
  • By an assessment of International Baccalaureate credentials
  • By challenging examination
  • By completion of academic work offered through an approved organization
  • By an evaluation of prior academic work on a case-by-case basis

Throughout the policy the word "Dean" is taken to mean the Deans (or designates) of academic Faculties and the Assistant Provost (or designate) of the Centre for Inter-Faculty Programs.
