Transferring from another institution

We make it easy to transfer

Whether you come here directly from another post-secondary institution, take a few years off, or go through a bridge program, it's easy to transfer to UVic Engineering.

Simply apply online and send in your transcripts. Within a few weeks you'll receive a transfer evaluation with a course-by-course description of how your credit transfers to UVic. Once you've been accepted, an academic advisor will provide hands-on assistance as you enrol in a Faculty of Engineering program.

Eligible transfer credit is normally assigned as part of the admission process. Transfer credit from BC colleges, International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement programs will be assigned according to the equivalencies set out in the BC Transfer Guide for the year in which the courses were completed.

Several BC post-secondary institutions offer first-year engineering transfer programs. Many of these programs transfer seamlessly into second year of the BEng and BSEng programs at UVic. Students that complete of one of these programs, with an overall standing of 67%, can be considered for admission to second year on an equal footing with 1st year students in the Faculty of Engineering. Should the demand exceed the spaces available, admission to the second year of these degree programs will be based on academic performance in the first year of studies.
