Transfer Credit


As a member school of the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT), Acsenda allows students to transfer academic credit from other recognized post-secondary institutions to Acsenda courses and programs.

The purpose of this is to increase access for students and to facilitate mobility between other post-secondary institutions and Acsenda School of Management.

In addition, students should not be required to retake academic courses successfully completed elsewhere where there is a reasonable fit or match with the majority of the learning outcomes.

Transfer credit will be examined once admissions has received a paid application and transcript. Use the Transfer Credit Summary you receive with your admission to Acsenda School of Management to determine what courses you need to complete your degree program. Feel free to contact your Academic Advisor for help with this process. If you see unspecified or no credit on your Transfer Credit Summary for a class you believe you should be receiving specific credit for, send course outlines/syllabi to your Academic Advisor for review.

If you are transferring from a BC public post-secondary institution you can visit the BC Transfer guide for an idea of what may transfer.

International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement

Domestic or international applicants who are graduates from the International Baccalaureate (IB) program and Advanced Placement
programs are eligible for admission and may receive course credit for first-year undergraduate courses.

IB diploma graduates must have a minimum score of 24 points and at least three (3) Higher Level, and three (3) Standard Level courses including English and Math. Nonetheless, if only Certificate courses have been completed, admission will be based on the high school curriculum.

For applicants who present results of one or more Advanced Placement (AP) courses, the admission will be based on the highest of either the AP score or the approved course grade of an equivalent course in the curriculum being followed by the applicant.

The grade conversion scales used to determine admission based on official AP and IB results are as follows:

Applicants who have completed the IB diploma are eligible for between 18 to 30 credits for first-year courses depending on the
courses completed. IB students must have a grade of 4 or higher in each course eligible for transfer credit. Also, applicants who have completed Advanced Placement (AP) courses with a grade of 4 or higher may be considered for first-year course credit on a case-by-case basis.


Students may appeal a transfer credit evaluation by writing to the Registrar requesting a re-evaluation of transfer credits and providing additional information to support that request.

As a result, if there are reasonable grounds for appealing the decision of the Registrar, the student may send a letter of appeal to the VP Academic, and consequently, the VP Academic decision on transfer credit appeals is final.
