Sheridan College welcomes the announcement by the Ontario Government earlier this week that will lead to increased transferability of credits between colleges and universities. The new system will take effect in September, 2011, and will reduce the need for students to repeat similar courses or years at different institutions. In addition, the Government’s new Credit Transfer Innovation Fund will support projects that expand student pathways, create more seamless educational experiences and increase college-university collaboration.
“This is very good news for our students,” said Dr. Mary Preece, Senior Vice President – Academic and Research at Sheridan. “Sheridan has many articulation agreements in place with universities in Ontario and elsewhere, and this initiative will result in even more pathways and options for our students.” For more information about the new credit transfer system, visit: http://www.news.ontario.ca/tcu/en/2011/01/helping-students-graduate-faster.html
