Transfer Students

Complete your degree at the MountThe Mount welcomes students with beginnings at other universities or colleges with open arms. We're 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.

2+2 / Articulation

We're 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 begins after you’ve been accepted to the Mount and can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to complete. To ensure the quickest turnaround times possible, we recommend: 

Please note that transfer credits are only awarded for course work completed at a recognized public university or college.

Once the transfer-credit assessment is complete, students are issued a Statement of Standing - a list of courses that have been transferred to the Mount. 

Please note: Students are required to complete at least 50% of their course work at the degree-granting institution and there is a limit to the number of classes that can be transferred to the Mount. Students who receive the maximum amount of transfer credits won’t be allowed to do courses on Letters of Permission at other universities.

After you receive your Statement of Standing, we recommend contacting one of our very talented academic advisors to help select your classes and ensure you're meeting all program requirements. 

Following advising and tuition payment, you'll be able to register for courses online through myMount.
