Transfer students are welcome to apply for admission and a transfer of credits into the Acupuncture Diploma Program.
Students must submit an application for the transfer of credits with their program application when they initially apply for acceptance into any program. Students are not permitted to apply for or request any transfer credits after being accepted into or when any program begins.
Students who have earned credits in another recognized acupuncture program in Canada, the United States, China, Australia, and the UK (schools from other countries will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis) can transfer into CCATCM. Acupuncture transfer students must complete at least 50 per cent of their coursework at CCATCM to be eligible to receive a CCATCM diploma.
Students who have completed a Diploma of Acupressure at CCATCM can apply for admission directly into the Acupuncture Diploma Program and can transfer all credits without a transfer fee.
Transfer of Credits
Students who have completed credits at another recognized college or university may apply for credit transfer only at the time of initial enrolment.
For transfer credit consideration, a student must submit an application and all transcripts indicating successful completion of relevant coursework with a passing grade of 60 per cent or higher. Students must submit an application for the transfer of credits with their program application (in writing) when they initially apply for acceptance into any program. Students are not permitted to apply for any transfer credits after they have been accepted into any program or after the program begins.
At the Education Director’s discretion, a student may also be required to submit additional course information such as a course description and syllabus.
To be considered for transfer credit, courses must match those offered in the Acupuncture Diploma Program. This is for single courses only – no combined courses. Each transfer course must have its own mark. Approval of a transfer credit is at the discretion of the college.
All deductions from approved transfer credits will lessen tuition costs by $10 per academic hour (i.e. a 45-hour course transfer is eligible for a $450 tuition decrease). Fifteen hours constitutes one credit.
The student must pay a $50 administrative fee per each eligible credit (i.e. a 45-hour course (3 credits) transfer will have a $150 administrative fee).
