Transfer Credit / Advanced Standing

Advanced standing is awarded to a student upon demonstration of acquired knowledge of a course’s content through university or professional course. It does not reduce the credit hours or tuition and fees required; the courses must be replaced with GRST 994, other courses or research hours.

Transfer credit is awarded when a student has successfully completed coursework at an accredited institution that has not been used to satisfy another academic credential. This coursework may be transferred to the University of Regina and reduces the overall credit hours and the tuition by the number of courses accepted. Please see the Graduate calendar for complete details.
