Transferring to Lambton College  

Transferring to Lambton College from another post-secondary institution

Many students come to Lambton College after having completed all or part of a post-secondary program at another institution In such instances, Lambton College is committed to the recognition of prior learning and credits earned at other postsecondary institutions where these are relevant and appropriate to the certificate, diploma and degree programs we offer.

The amount of Lambton College credit/advanced standing awarded to students who transfer into a Lambton College program is determined based on an assessment of the depth and breadth of prior content and the level of prior study relative to Lambton College approved program outcomes.

College-to-College Transfer
Lambton has signed a provincial College-to-College Transfer Protocol along with the other 23 Ontario Colleges
According to the Transfer Protocol, when a student transfers to a program from one of our partner institutions, every attempt is made to maximize the transfer credits/advanced standing awarded to students without compromising the academic integrity of the receiving program. Where there is deemed to be a match between the level and content of the prior learning, a student may be granted transfer credit/advanced standing for open electives, professional options and/or substitute credits scheduled into a non-standard timetable.

University to College Transfer
An increasing number of students seek admission to Lambton College programs after attending university for all or part of a university program. In the case of graduate certificates the prior university study is typically assessed as part of the admissions process and therefore may not be eligible for duplicate credit towards advanced standing.
For further information and/or specific assistance in assessing credit transfer/advanced standing opportunities students are advised to consult with the Counselling Office at Lambton College,(519) 542-7751 ext.3412.
