MSVU Two Plus Two Program (2 + 2)
The Mount has Articulation Agreements with the New Brunswick Community College, Nova Scotia Community College, Bermuda College, Holland College, Lasalle College, and a variety of international institutions.
If you are a graduate of the diploma programs that the Mount has an agreement with you may be granted up to 50 percent of degree requirements as transfer credit. This means you could finish your BBA in two years.
Learning is a lifelong experience. If your educational journey is about to begin, and you have been out of school for some time, you are considered a mature learner. Mature learners are admitted on a case-by-case basis. When you apply for admission, please include a statement of educational goals, a resume, transcripts from previous study, and any additional documentation of professional training or experience. You should include both volunteer and paid employment skills. An interview will be arranged with an academic advisor prior to admission to discuss your educational possibilities. For more information on admission for mature learners, refer to Admission procedures for the Mount.
Transferring Credit from Previous Study or Work Experience
If you have completed similar courses at other universities or community college, you may qualify for transfer credit. You can request transfer credit by providing transcripts and detailed course outlines from your previous institution for admissions assessment.
If you have considerable work experience in the field or relevant professional credentials, you can complete a Prior Learning Assessment. Your portfolio must include employers’ letters, diplomas, certificates, and/or transcripts. All materials in the portfolio must be clearly linked to the courses that you feel are the equivalent of your experience. The portfolio is submitted to the Registrar’s Office for assessment by faculty. Find more information in the brochure.
You can also challenge for course credit if you cannot transfer credit, or if you cannot provide a portfolio for assessment. Challenges usually involve completing course assignments and examinations.
You can transfer a maximum of 50% of the credits required for any credential: certificate, diploma, or degree. By combining portfolio assessment, transfer credit, and challenge for credit, you can obtain a maximum of 75% of a credential. If you have considerable work experience or coursework, you are urged to discuss your situation with a faculty member prior to registering for classes.
