Transfer / Advanced Credit

General Policy on the Transfer of University Course Credits

To facilitate program completion by undergraduate students seeking to transfer course credit from an accredited university to McMaster, the University has implemented the following principles:

  • Acceptance of transfer credits from accredited universities shall be based on the recognition that, while learning experiences may differ in a variety of ways, their substance may be essentially equivalent in terms of their content and rigour. Insofar as possible, acceptance of transfer credit shall allow for the maximum recognition of previous learning experience in university-level courses; 
  • Subject to degree, grade and program requirements, any course offered for credit by an accredited university shall be accepted for credit by McMaster when there is an essential equivalency in course content. However, no course for which a grade of less than C- (60%) has been achieved will be considered. 
  • Evaluation of all possible transfer credits available at the time of admission must be completed within one year of the date of admission to the University. 

General Policy on the Transfer of Credits From Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology

Normally, if you are a well-qualified graduate of a three-year program and the college work is appropriate to your chosen university program, you could receive up to 30 units of transfer credit. If you have completed a two-year program and performed well, transfer credit will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Credit beyond this may be given on an individual basis where the college and university programs are in similar areas, and where your academic record warrants special consideration.

In the granting of credit, attention will be given to;

  • your performance in the college program;
  • the duration of the college program;
  • the program taken at the college and the program to which entry is sought;
  • your secondary school record.

Each case will be considered individually on its own merits for the program desired.
Evaluation of all possible transfer credits available at the time of admission must be completed within one year of the date of admission to the University. 

For more information on equivalent courses at other international/Canadian universities and colleges, please refer to our Pre-approved Equivalent Courses Chart.

Transferring Advanced Credit for High School Courses

Subject to the discretion of the Faculty, advanced credit may be granted if you have completed the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) Diploma, the Advanced Placement (A.P.) Program or the General Certificate of Education (G.C.E.) and you have met the minimum requirements prescribed. Advanced credit may shorten your degree program at McMaster.

General Certificate of Education (G.C.E.)

Applicants from the General Certificate of Education system require five G.C.E. subjects at least two of which must be at the Advanced Level with the balance of the subjects at the Ordinary Level. Advanced Level subjects must be appropriate to your chosen program.

International Baccalaureate (I.B.) Diploma

Applicants who have completed or will be completing the International Baccalaureate Diploma will be considered for admission to Level I, provided the completed diploma program includes the subject requirements of the program desired. Advanced credit of up to 18 units of study will be considered for Higher Level (HL) courses based on the achievement of final IB Diploma grades of 5 or greater.

Advanced Placement (A.P.) Courses/Examinations

Applicants who have completed AP courses will be considered for admission to a Level I program. Applicants who have completed A.P. exams through the College Board in acceptable courses and achieve a minimum grade of 4 will be considered for up to 18 units of advanced credit. PLEASE NOTE: A.P. results from students who have completed the examinations as a challenge and have not taken the course at high school will not be considered as having completed the required prerequisite courses for admission consideration. For all students who have completed the full AP courses and the examinations through the College Board, an official copy of the final Advanced Placement Examination Results Report from the College Board is required as part of the evaluation process.



University Credit Transfer Consortium

McMaster University has joined with the following six Ontario universities to make it easier for students to get credit for courses already completed. Students who have completed any first-year humanities, social sciences and science degree courses at University of Ottawa, Queen’s University, University of Guelph, University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, or Western University, with a minimum grade of 60%, are assured of general, first-year credit upon admission to McMaster University.

Among the seven-member University Credit Transfer Consortium, we will grant specific course credit for 20 of the most highly subscribed first-year and second-year basic courses. Consortium members are committed to ensuring that all courses within our degrees meet standards of high quality and that our basic courses adequately prepare for more focused learning in higher years. Completing any of these foundational courses at any consortium member university will satisfy the program prerequisite requirement that the corresponding McMaster University course would satisfy, subject to meeting grade requirements. Please review the chart below for transfer information of specific courses. A printable .pdf version of the chart is also available: printable version



  • Applicants transferring from a Consortium institution are not limited to receive credit for the courses listed as part of the Consortium Matrix only.  Courses not included in the matrix will be considered for transfer credit under our general guidelines listed above.
  • Students must meet the McMaster university residency requirement to complete a minimum of 10.0 full credits at McMaster  (the equivalent of two years of full-time study) to be eligible to receive a degree from McMaster University.
