For High School Counsellors

Transferring from Lakeland College

Whether it's moving from our university transfer program or using a 2+2 options to earn a diploma and a degree in 4 years, Lakeland College has a multitude of options for student who want to  further their education.

About two-thirds of our students attend another post-secondary institution after leaving Lakeland. And why not?

Transferring credits is easy, thanks to the 1,200+ transfer agreements we maintain with four-year institutions in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

We also have 2+2 agreements (block transfer agreements) that allow students to take a two year diploma here and then two years at university to earn a degree.

If you’re planning on a four-year degree, why start here? Our small class sizes, accessible faculty, and low-key atmosphere make for an easy transition to college.

About 3/4 of our transfers say they’re glad they started out at Lakeland --- and would make the same decision if they were starting all over again.

Nearly half our transfers go to either the University of Saskatchewan or the University of Alberta --- and most have 100 percent of their Lakeland credits accepted by their new institution.

Lakeland College has numerous block transfer agreements with universities across Western Canada and even in the US. As well, our students can receive transfer credit at other institutions.

Block transfer of diploma programs
Each program area has a further study menu option that highlights opportunities for further study at other post-secondary institutions where a block transfer of credit exists between Lakeland and the receiving institution.

In total we have about 100 program (or block transfer) agreements.
A Note on Transfers
If you want to transfer to another institution, you must ensure that you meet the admission requirements of that institution. This may include requirements for certain high school courses, minimum or competitive entrance grade point averages, minimum grades in particular courses, application deadlines, quota restrictions and other criteria set by the receiving institution.

However, meeting the requirements does not guarantee that you will be accepted, especially in programs with quotas of other qualifying factors.

"From my instructors I learned about block transfer agreements with other Universities. I chose to transfer into Environmental and Conservation Sciences at the University of Alberta because of the full credit they would offer me, and the program seemed to be a great fit with my career goals."
