Complete your degree at the MountThe Mount welcomes students who began their post-secondary studies at other universities or colleges. We are a small campus on the water with a close-knit student community just a few minutes away from the beautiful city of Halifax. With one of the smallest average class sizes in the country, our focus is always on you. We are pleased to offer students of designated colleges the opportunity to complete a university degree with us once their diploma has been received - what we refer to as '2+2.' Find out if your college & program comply.

How to Proceed as a Transfer Student

Your transfer credit assessment is completed once you have been accepted to the Mount and the results will be included in your acceptance package, unless additional information is required to complete the assessment. Review the Transfer Credit Databank to see potential transfer credits available.

To ensure the quickest turnaround times possible, we recommend:

  • Reviewing admissions requirements and application deadlines for transfer students. If you have any questions regarding requirements or deadlines please contact the Admissions Office at msvu.ca

  • Provide us with official transcripts from all of the post-secondary institutions you have attended. Failure to disclose your complete academic history may result in dismissal from the university.

Please Note: Transfer credits are only awarded for coursework completed at an accredited public university or college.

The transfer-credit assessment is completed when students are accepted and a Transfer Equivalency Report will be included in the acceptance package. This report provides a list of the courses that have been transferred to the degree program at the Mount.  

Please Note: Students are required to complete at least 50 percent of the total number of credits required for your credential at the Mount (this includes major, minor, specialization and concentration requirements). The other 50 percent of the total credits can be transferred to the Mount from another institution, as long as the credits fit into the degree program course requirements. Review the academic calendar for more information on transfer credits and applying external credits.

Students who receive the maximum number of transfer credits will not be permitted to do external courses on Letter of Permission at other universities or colleges.

After you receive your Transfer Equivalency Report, we recommend contacting one of our Academic Advisors to help select your classes and ensure you are meeting all program requirements. 

Following your advising session, and after submitting your confirmation deposit, you will be able to register for courses online through myMount.
