Articulation agreements with specific colleges or Cégeps

Home > College Credit Transfer

Many enhanced pathways are available between partner institutions as a result of support and collaboration from the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT).

Upon completion of a college program, applicants may continue their studies in one of Saint Paul University’s undergraduate programs while obtaining equivalencies for their college studies.

Candidates from Cégeps

Applicants who have successfully completed 12 courses of general studies (not including physical education and remedial courses) including one course in English (603) or français (601), may obtain up to 15 units of advanced standing. Those who have successfully completed more than 16 courses of general studies may obtain up to 30 units of advanced standing. In some cases, more units may be granted through our pathway agreements.

Candidates from Ontario Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology (CAAT)

Applicants who have completed two years in the same program can obtain up to 30 units of advanced standing. In some cases, more units may be granted through our pathway agreements.

Applicants who have completed a one-year university transfer program can obtain 30 units of advanced standing.

Candidates from other Canadian Colleges

The same rule applies to candidates from a Canadian college who have completed two years in the same program.

Thanks to our articulation agreements with various educational institutions, candidates can receive up to 60 units of equivalencies.

Here is a list of institutions with which we have a specific transfer agreement. Click on an institution’s logo to learn more.

Rights of refusal

Saint Paul University reserves the right to refuse to apply the memorandum of understanding to a candidate who obtained a college diploma covered by the protocol more than three (3) years before their application for admission.

*Saint-Paul University (USP) also has a Host Articulation Agreement with Algonquin College and Collège Boréal. Thanks to this agreement, students who wish to pursue a college education after obtaining a diploma at USP in certain programs can obtain the transfer of a certain number of credits.
