Direct entry

View direct entry information sheets

If you have completed a degree, a diploma or a substantial amount of course work in a specific program, you may qualify for direct entry into a full-time program. If approved, you would be awarded credit for a portion of a program.

Even when you're granted transfer credit, most applicants are required to do additional course work before starting at the advanced level. So when applying for direct entry, allow time for your application to be assessed and to take courses before the start of your advanced studies.

Acceptance into direct entry is dependent on many factors: seat availability, meeting course equivalencies, department approval, competitiveness and application and document submission with sufficient time for review.
