View Humber College’s articulation agreement opportunities:
Humber College awards advanced standing for block transfer articulation agreements and exemptions (equivalencies) in recognition of previous learning.
Advanced Standing/Block Transfer: occurs when a group of courses taken at a sending institution is equivalent to a group of courses required at the receiving institution. This means that graduates of a diploma program in Ontario having the same program outcomes as a Humber College diploma may be eligible for a block transfer. If approved, students may be able to complete their degrees in a shorter duration of time. Students will have to apply into first semester through ontariocolleges.ca, meet all admission requirements for the program and self-identify to the admission officer to begin the block transfer process. If not approved for a block transfer, students may look into individual transfer credits.
Transfer Credits: occurs when individual transfer credit is awarded to students who have completed a similar or equivalent course at another postsecondary institution that is considered equal in content or academic value.
Conferred Degree from a Canadian Postsecondary Institution: occurs when students may be eligible for exemption from their WRIT 100 level English course if they hold a conferred degree from a recognized Canadian postsecondary institution. This is not an automatic process. Students will still need to apply through the same transfer credit process for this exemption by indicating on their application form that they possess a conferred degree.
The amount of transfer credit you can receive is limited by Humber College’s residency policy. The policy states that at least 25% of credits in a program of study must be completed at the College.
For further details regarding our residency policy, please view the Academic Regulations (http://www.humber.ca/admissions/how-apply/academic-regulations).
Humber College will consider courses completed within the past 5 years for transfer credit for core courses and 10 years for Degree Breadth electives (LASB001), General Education electives (GENX001), MATH and WRIT courses. Students need to provide a detailed course outline from the year they took the course(s).
Follow these steps in order to receive your PLAR assessment at Humber College:
- Applicants, who can demonstrate knowledge and skills gained outside a formal education environment through work, volunteer, or other life experiences, may apply for Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) if that knowledge and skill corresponds to a specific Humber College course or program. Credit for courses obtained through PLAR may normally replace no more than 50% of the course credits required for any degree program and 75% required for any diploma or certificate program.
- Students obtain the course outline from the Academic School responsible for delivering the course.
- Students review the course outline to determine if knowledge and skills match the course learning outcomes. Consult with the Program Coordinator if you need clarification.

These might include: a resume, a description of experiences and learning that relate to the course being challenged, work samples, and letters of verification. Include a letter describing experiences and the learning that relates to the course outline. If your Program Coordinator requests that you sit for a challenge exam, please follow the steps below and the Academic School will arrange your exam once you have submitted your application and payment to the Office of the Registrar.
