Finding the right fit is important — you may choose to continue your studies at another post-secondary institution. Plan carefully so that you'll gain credit for your learning while you're still enrolled in courses at SAIT.
Whether you're looking to change institutions or programs, or advance your education with another credential across the globe, explore your options by starting here.
Transfer options are based on articulation agreements, which predetermine how courses and programs at one post-secondary institution can be used to satisfy admission requirements or award transfer credit at another institution.
Articulation agreements can be sending, receiving, or internal:
At its best, a transfer option can advance your education while simultaneously saving you time and money.
Finding the transfer option that is the best fit for you is a personal choice. Factors to consider include:
Completed courses and programs have a shelf life — there is a time limit regarding how long a post-secondary institution will accept those courses and programs for transfer credit.
Most institutions have a five to seven-year time limit from the date of completion for awarding transfer credit.
Each post-secondary institution has its own policies regarding shelf life, so it is best to check with the institution you'd like to attend beforehand in order to understand how your course or program might be accepted.
1. Choose an articulation agreement
Maybe you have a clear idea of what you're looking for, or you're still deciding. Search through the articulation agreements that we currently have in place and choose which agreement you'd like to use.
2. Apply to the program
You're not automatically accepted to the post-secondary institution that you'd like to attend. You must apply to the program in order to initiate the transfer. There is no special "transfer application" — you submit an application like any other student.
3. Submit your Transcript
If you're applying to an Alberta post-secondary institution using applyalberta.ca you'll have your transcript sent electronically on your behalf, provided that you list SAIT in your academic history.
If you're applying outside of Alberta or Canada, you must order a transcript to be sent from SAIT's Office of the Registrar to the institution you would like to attend.Order a transcript
