CIE (Centre for International Experience) Approved Exchange Students Transfer Credit

The information below pertains to UofT students who have been approved (nominated by CIE) to participate on exchange at a partner institution.

Once you receive approval –

  • You are required to attend a mandatory pre-departure Transfer Credit Information Session
  • Review potential course equivalencies for the partner institution on Transfer Explorer
  • On page 2 of your nomination letter information on what constitutes a full course load is noted; you will need to keep this information in mind when finalizing your courses at the partner institution. You are encouraged to be flexible with your courses and should always have back up courses
  • Check the course calendar at the partner institution for course offerings
  • Gather course descriptions/syllabi for review by the appropriate department
  • Seek departmental/program approvals through the Pre-Departure course authorization form (available through Blackboard after nomination) either in person or via email prior to your departure; transfer credit contact listed on Blackboard
  • Discuss your plans with the departmental International Liaison (contact information available on Blackboard)
  • Completed forms/correspondence should be sent directly to exchange.transfercredit@utoronto.ca

While you are away -

  • Inform us of any final changes in your course enrolment at the host institution via exchange.transfercredit@utoronto.ca providing any further documentation (course syllabus/description) as necessary
  • Keep your graded coursework and notebooks in case required
  • Arrange for your official final transcript to be sent directly to CIE (Student Exchange Program, 33 St. George St, Toronto, ON M5S 2E3)

Upon your return -

  • Complete and submit the Credit Transfer Request form to exchange.transfercredit@utoronto.ca 
  • Submit all pre-approvals (if not previously done) to exchange.transfercredit@utoronto.ca
  • Transfer Credit will be assessed within eight weeks after receipt of all documentation
  • Email notification will be sent to you once your credits have been awarded and are viewable on Degree Explorer
  • If you are completing your final term abroad, please note that you may have to defer your graduation to November as your exchange transcript may not be received in time for you to graduate in June. You are responsible for requesting graduation on ACORN/ROSI by the deadline in the relevant session.
