Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Policies

Ontario Tech University adheres to the General Policy on the transfer of course credits, as adopted by the Council of Ontario Universities. While learning experiences may differ, course substance may be virtually equivalent in terms of course content and rigour. When possible, acceptance of transfer credit should allow maximum recognition of previous learning experiences in university-level courses.

Ontario universities support full disclosure of all marks achieved in all attempts in secondary and post-secondary courses. Withholding academic information may result in expulsion from the university. Ontario Tech will review transfer credits from accepted accredited post-secondary institutions only.

It is the student’s responsibility to adhere to the academic regulations and degree requirements as stated in the Undergraduate Academic Calendar. Ensure that you have read and understand all degree requirements. If you have any questions concerning the requirements for degree completion, contact your academic advisor.

Official transfer credit evaluations will appear as a credit on your Ontario Tech academic record. Please note that transfer credit is granted at the sole discretion of the university. A transfer credit decision cannot be reviewed or appealed. Assessments are conducted by the appropriate faculty and all decisions are final. Transfer credit assessments will be considered final one year after the date of admission to the university, after which, no further requests for transfer credit will be accepted.

If requested on your assessment, supporting documents such as institutionally-prepared course syllabi and official transcripts must be submitted to Ontario Tech. For more information on submitting your syllabi, please see our syllabus submission guidelines.

Be aware of course add/drop deadlines and tuition refund deadlines. Requests for fee refunds after the normal deadline dates, resulting from the awarding of transfer credit, will not be granted.
