ALL ABOUT TRANSFERRING It’s easy to transfer to Lakehead. Our pathway agreements and general transfer policies are designed to help you maximize your credits from your current or previous studies at either college or university – or even both! There are 4 different ways to transfer and become a Lakehead student

1 BILATERAL AGREEMENTS – FOR COLLEGE GRADUATES This is an agreement between Lakehead University and an accredited college that allows college graduates of a specific program to enter directly into a specific Lakehead program in the first, second, or third year of study.

2 MULTILATERAL AGREEMENTS – FOR COLLEGE GRADUATES Similar to bilateral agreements, a college graduate from ANY accredited Ontario college in specific programs can enter directly into a specific Lakehead program in the first, second, or third year of study.

3 GENERAL TRANSFER REQUIREMENTS – FOR COLLEGE AND/OR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS & GRADUATES If a transfer pathway does not exist for a program, college students (or graduates) will be assessed for transfer credits automatically. University students (or graduates) are assessed for transfer credits upon receipt of course syllabi.

4 ENGINEERING POST-DIPLOMA COLLEGE TRANSFER PROGRAMS – DIRECT ENTRY FOR GRADUATE ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGISTS

The Faculty of Engineering at Lakehead-Thunder Bay offers five post-diploma engineering degree programs enabling qualified graduate engineering technologists to earn a BEng degree in a minimum of a Summer + two regular academic years. See pages 15 - 16 for details.

Types of Transfer Credit The type of transfer credit you may receive depends on whether you enter into Lakehead through a bilateral or multilateral agreement, or by satisfying our general transfer requirements. In some cases, you may enter directly into Year 2 or 3 of the program. In other cases, you may receive either direct equivalency or unspecified equivalency credits.

DIRECT EQUIVALENCY

UNSPECIFIED EQUIVALENCY

A direct equivalency would mean that you received transfer credit for a specific course offered by Lakehead.

If the course work does not quite match, you may receive an unspecified transfer credit in a specific subject. As most programs have electives, you have the ability to use these transfer credits to fulfill those elective requirements.

We are here to help! Our Student Central team along with your Program Chair will help you 8 understand the credits awarded and how they will be used towards your program at Lakehead.


TRANSFERRING FROM ANOTHER UNIVERSITY

Let us help you achieve your degree completion goals. Whether you have started a degree at another university or are looking to complete a second degree, Lakehead provides you the opportunity to achieve your goals while recognizing the hard work and effort you have already put into university studies. General Admission Requirements These are the requirements to be considered for admission as a university transfer student: • Attended a university where you completed course work (i.e. you have received grades). • Completed (or are completing) the program-specific prerequisite courses at the high school, college, or university level. • Achieved a minimum overall average of 60% based on your university studies.

How Does Transfer Credit Work?

For university students (or graduates), Lakehead will consider you for transfer credit as part of your application. In general: • You must achieve a minimum grade of 60% in each course for it to be considered for transfer. • You must satisfy your program’s residency requirement. In most cases, you have to complete the last year of your degree at Lakehead. The amount of transfer credit received depends on a number of factors including: grades, previous course work and the program applied to at Lakehead University.

TRANSFERRING FROM A COLLEGE If you are looking at starting university studies after studying at a college, Lakehead provides many opportunities to transfer. The right pathway for you can be determined whether you have finished your college diploma or have partially completed your college diploma. Either way, we can help you achieve your goal of a university education.

What Are My Pathway Options?

In some cases, Lakehead has established multilateral agreements for particular diploma programs offered by all Ontario colleges. Refer to the “Agreements with All Ontario Colleges” section on page 11. In other cases, Lakehead has established articulation agreements for particular diploma programs offered by specific colleges. Refer to the “Agreements with Specific Colleges” section on pages 12-14.

General Admission Requirements

These are the requirements to be considered for admission as a college student. You have: • Completed a minimum of 1 year of full-time academic studies at an accredited community college since leaving high school, • Completed the appropriate program-specific prerequisite courses at the high school or college level, and • Achieved a minimum overall average of 70%. For more information, visit: www.lakeheadu.ca/undergrad-requirements

How Does Transfer Credit Work? For college graduates with a diploma*: 1. Three-Year Diploma*: For a three-year diploma, with a 70% or better cumulative average, or a 70% average in the last year of the program, up to 7.5 full course equivalents may be awarded. In exceptional cases, an additional 2 full course equivalents may be awarded. 2.

10

For college students who partially completed a diploma:

For both college graduates and college students who partially completed a diploma:

1. Partially Completed ThreeYear Diploma: For a threeyear diploma where only two full years have been completed, with a 70% cumulative average, or 70% average in the last year of the program, a maximum of 5 full course equivalents may be awarded.

1. A minimum grade of 70% must be achieved in diploma courses in order for transfer credit to be considered.

2. Partially Completed TwoYear Diploma: For a two-year diploma where only one full year has been completed, with a 70% cumulative average, or 70% average in the last year of the program, a maximum of 2 full course equivalents may be awarded.

2. Transfer credit is granted according to appropriateness of the college program, admission requirements, and academic achievement in relevant courses. Specific courses for transfer credit will be determined on an individual basis. For some programs, the transfer credits may be unspecified credits that can be used towards fulfilling elective requirements. 3. The amount of transfer credit received depends on a number of factors including grades, previous course work, and the program applied to at Lakehead University.

ENGINEERING

With more than 50 years of experience in post-diploma programming, Lakehead University-Thunder Bay offers unique engineering programs in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical and Software Engineering. The special design of the 4-year Bachelor of Engineering degrees at Lakehead University enables qualified graduate engineering technologists from Canadian colleges, or equivalent, to join Lakehead’s students in their third year of studies. Uniqueness, quality and reputation – that’s why our specially designed programs attract graduate engineering technologists from Canadian institutions from Victoria to St. John’s, as well as international students. The post-diploma College Transfer program consists of a Summer Transition offered in July and August followed by a minimum of two regular (September to April) academic years.

The Faculty of Engineering at Lakehead University ─ Thunder Bay campus is proud to offer post-diploma engineering degree programs in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical and Software Engineering for graduate engineering technologists. Lakehead University’s Faculty of Engineering is a recognized leader in post-diploma engineering education. Engineering Technology is an integral part of the first two years of our BEng programs. Faculty members are experienced in technology education and working with college diploma graduates to develop the engineering skills necessary to complete their engineering degree Each Bachelor of Engineering degree program offered at Lakehead University-Thunder Bay is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB). Graduation from a CEAB accredited program satisfies the academic requirements of the Canadian professional engineering associations.

The Co-op Advantage

A Co-operative/Internship option is available for all the BEng programs. Post-diploma College Transfer students can apply directly in third year, and will receive workshops on interviewing, resume preparation, and work performance. You will accumulate at least 16 months of paid, practical work experience and graduate a year later than students enrolled in the regular Bachelor of Engineering program.

Experiential Learning

Experiential Learning is an important component in Lakehead’s Bachelor of Engineering programs. Our students participate in team-based learning including projects and presentations, handson laboratories, a Senior Design project, and have the opportunity to apply for Co-operative/Internship programs and International Exchange programs. Enhance your education by participating in our engineering speaker’s series, tours, volunteer opportunities, Technical and Professional Chapters, engineering competitions, and a variety of on-campus and community events.

Bachelor of Engineering ~ Master of Business Adminstration

A NEW INTEGRATED DEGREE OPPORTUNITY AT OUR THUNDER BAY CAMPUS The Bachelor of Engineering with Master of Business Administration (BEng/MBA) provides a new degree option which enables post-diploma College Transfer students to integrate an undergraduate degree in Engineering with a Master of Business Administration degree. BEng/MBA students earn two degrees by taking a combination of Engineering and MBA courses in their final years of study. The integrated degree extends the program of study by one additional year, including a summer term. Students can apply directly into the BEng/MBA program or apply prior to the fourth year of BEng studies.

ENGINEERING Q&A What’s unique about Lakehead’s engineering programs?

Answer: Our post-diploma engineering degree programs are unique because they are designed solely for graduate engineering technologists. In other words, we do not try to “bridge” you into regularly designed engineering degree programs. Our courses and programs are specifically designed for you. All our degree courses are designed to take into consideration your previous technology education.

How long are the Post-Diploma engineering degree programs?

Answer: Each program is a minimum of two academic years (September to April) in length following a series of transition courses taken during the summer prior to the start of the first full academic year of study. You will join Lakehead’s graduate Engineering Technologists in the 3rd year of the 4-year degree program. DIPLOMA + 2 YEARS* = ENGINEERING DEGREE * plus make up courses, where applicable. The make up courses can normally be integrated into the regular program of study. On advice from their Engineering Department Chair, some students take courses such as Complementary Studies in the next Spring/ Summer session to accommodate make up courses during the regular academic year.

What are the academic requirements for entry?

Answer: Applicants must have a diploma in engineering technology from a community college, or the equivalent, with an average* of at least 70% (GPA = 3.0 on a 4.0 point scale, B Grade) in the final year of their program to be eligible for admission consideration. OR Applicants must have two or more years of relevant industrial experience acquired after the completion of a diploma in engineering technology from a community college or the equivalent, with an average* of at least 65% (GPA = 2.5 on a 4.0 point scale, C+ Grade) in the final year of their program to be eligible for admission consideration. *This average is based on the marks/grade received by the applicant on their first attempt in the required courses of the final year of their technology program.
