I have some college or university credits

  • 1. Transfer Credits

    Transfer credit achieved from individual courses at a previous college or university to a course in a certificate, diploma or degree program at George Brown. You can find a list of course equivalents in our Course-to-Course Equivalencies Database. If your course is not there, review the Guide to Selecting Courses Eligible for Transfer Credit to help you determine if you can use your previous course toward credit at George Brown.

    Individual transfer credits may still be possible even if you are taking a program at George Brown that is not similar to your previous program. Most programs require College English and electives which are your best opportunities for transfer credits. Check out General Education and Liberal Studies Electives and Course Outlines for College English for more information.
