College-to-university transfer program

A student wearing headphones sits in front of a laptop.If you are soon to receive or have already received a college diploma, you may apply for advanced entry into our Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Educational Studies and Digital Technologies (ESDT) program. This college-to-university transfer program provides you with two years' credit towards our four-year degree.

Following the completion of your BA, you may then apply to our Consecutive Bachelor of Education (BEd) Primary/Junior program, to earn the credentials you will need to teach at the elementary level in Ontario.

Note: The BA in ESDT program does not provide the necessary foundation for the BEd Intermediate/Senior program.

For more information about this college-to-university transfer program, see our BA in ESDT page.

There are also other programs at the university that may allow you to apply to the Consecutive BEd program upon completion. For more information, please see the university's programs page.

Your college diploma has provided you with a solid foundation of practical learning. You may build upon this as you further your education. In our college-to-university transfer program, you can turn your diploma into a university degree in just two years (based on full-time study).

Our BA program is flexible, allowing you to schedule your courses around your other activities. Our courses are offered during the standard lunch hour and in the evenings, allowing you the option to continue working full-time while you complete your degree.

Once you have successfully completed the BA in ESDT program, you may apply to our BEd Primary/Junior program.
