Transfer, AP, and IB Students
Burman University recognizes learning that takes place prior to enrolling for studies at Burman University. In order to receive transfer credit, official transcripts must be received. Courses will not be evaluated until official transcripts are received. Courses that appear in the Alberta Transfer Guide will be transferred to Burman University as per the Transfer Guide Agreement. Courses taken at another institution in Canada and the United States are evaluated on a course by course basis. Courses taken outside of North America may require an additional evaluation by World Education Services (WES) in order to be considered for transfer credit.
Students may transfer a maximum of 60 credits into a four-year program or 45 credits into three-year programs. Minimum grade accepted for transfer will be the grade allowed in the degree section to which the transferred course will apply (breadth, cognate, major/concentration/specialization, elective, etc.). Transferred courses must also meet the minimum cumulative GPA requirement of the program of study towards graduation.
A maximum of 50% of the credits required for a major/concentration/specialization may be transferred.
Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) Courses
Students may receive university transfer credit from their Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses. A minimum grade of 4 is required for AP and 5 for IB before a course will be considered for transfer credit.
