New tool helps students transfer to UofT
Published on: August 15, 2013
New “Transfer Explorer” shows whether course credits taken at other institutions are eligible for transfer to U of T.
University of Toronto has released a new tool on its student web service that will allow students (current and prospective) to check the eligibility of courses taken at other Canadian post-secondary institutions for transfer to the university. The functionality of the tool would also include credits for transfer between faculties at any of the University of Mississauga, Downtown or Scarborough campuses.
The tool features an easy-to-use interface that identifies the needs of the student and allows them to match a course code or subject with an institution or faculty. The tool is “public facing”, meaning that no log-in or authentication is required.
The tool was developed by the University’s Next Generation Student Information Services (NGSIS) program as part of an initiative that allows students to find information and to self-manage their experience at the institution.
