Transfer Credits and Academic Pathways

Leveraging your educational experiences

Thinking of transferring institutions? We may be able to count the credits you've earned towards your UFred degree.

Considering an additional study track after graduation? We can help you find the right academic pathway.

Want to fast-track your studies? Your prior learning could mean you're exempt from some courses.

How to apply for transfer credits

If you’ve studied before or want to transfer, it only takes a few simple steps to find out if your previous academic experience is eligible for transfer credits.

Step 1 – Find a UFred degree that aligns with your ambitions and submit your application


Step 2 – Talk to one of our Program Advisors about your personal circumstances and qualifications.  


Step 3 – Think you meet the criteria? Go ahead and complete our Recognition of Transfer Credits form and submit all required documents to recognition@ufred.ca

Step 4 - Once you’ve provided the relevant information, we’ll let you know if you’re exempt from any courses in your chosen degree. Please note there is a fee of $100 for each recognized course. Once the process is complete, you will not be required to complete the recognized course during your studies at the University of Fredericton.


You may need to provide the following:  

  • your CV with job descriptions detailing your roles and responsibilities 

  • academic and professional qualifications

  • reflective statements explaining how you apply knowledge and skills in the workplace (more info can be provided by our Program Advisors)

What is an academic pathway?

Academic pathways are established when two institutions set up a formal articulation agreement between programs. This agreement includes a review process of the curriculum of both programs, to ensure alignment and maximize transfer credit.


With an academic pathway, you're ensured that your prior learning at an instittution will be recognized as credit toward the program you're transfering to.

Current pathway options

  • Columbia Southern University (CSU): UFred graduates may transfer their credits and certificate hours to CSU and continue working towards a bachelor's degree in a variety of degree fields.

  • Lambton College: Graduates of some Lambton programs who hold a bachelor's degree will be considered academically qualified to apply to UFred's MBA program.
