Syllabus submission

Within your Applicant Portal, you'll be able to track your transfer credit assessment. If all of your courses aren't listed in your portal, please be patient. University courses which had a grade lower than C- (and college-level courses with a grade lower than B-) are not eligible for transfer credit consideration and will not show up in your Applicant Portal. Once the Admissions team has evaluated your courses and completed an initial assessment, you'll have the opportunity to submit syllabi.

We may group courses together. If your courses are grouped, you are still required to submit syllabi for all the courses even though "Pending Syllabus" will only appear for the first course. 

For example, CHM 1045 and CHM 1045L are grouped courses but we would require syllabi from both.

Engineering students must include detailed lecture, lab and tutorial hours, and graduate attributes in all syllabi. If you do not have a syllabus with this information, please forward us an email from the relevant department at your previous institution confirming this information. Failing to provide this information will cause a significant delay in your assessment.

Syllabus Requirements

  • Course and instructor
  • Course descriptions/objectives
  • Grading

Each submitted syllabus must be in a separate form and Portable Document Format (PDF) or Microsoft Word file (.doc or .docx format) attached each time. The university does not accept paper copies of course syllabi for curriculum evaluation. The file name must follow this format: Subject and course code - course title. The course code and title should be from your previous institution. For example: MATH 116 – Calculus 1 for Engineering.pdf. Syllabi submissions that are not in the required electronic format, or not separated into individual files, will not be accepted. If you are unable to produce an electronic version in the acceptable format, please contact the Admissions team at

The university will not accept a brief course calendar or website descriptions. In rare situations, submission of textbooks, tests or assignments may be required to complete the curriculum assessment.
