Algonquin College will recognize previous post-secondary experience for course credit into our diploma, advanced diploma, and degree programs. Your previous academic experience could reduce your course load or reduce your overall completion time – bringing you closer to your goals. We have established pathways for advanced standing into a number of our programs:

  • Bachelor of Building Science, Bridge to level 3
  • Bachelor of Building Science, Bridge to level 5
  • Bachelor of Early Learning and Community Development
  • Bachelor of Hospitality and Tourism Management
  • Bachelor of Interior Design
  • Advertising and Marketing Communication Management
  • Applied Museum Studies
  • Child and Youth Care
  • Journalism
  • Professional Writing

In addition to these pre-determined pathways, Algonquin will also recognize previous academic experience towards other programs. To be eligible to follow a pre-determined pathway or to request a credit assessment students must have passed their courses with a minimum grade of 63%, C, within the last 5 years. Note that general education electives, some communications and math courses, and other courses at the discretion of the academic area are not subject to the five year guideline.
