Brock University – Aboriginal Student Services


General Information

Brock grants transfer credits, where possible, to recognize the work you have completed at another institution. When you apply, we will automatically evaluate your application for transfer credits if you have attended another accredited post-secondary institution in the past. As a transfer applicant, you may apply partway through studies at your current post-secondary institution or after you have completed your program at your current post-secondary institution. Your previous educational experience will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Applicability of your previous program to your chosen Brock program
  • Your academic achievement
  • Completion of prerequisite courses (if applicable)

For more information on Brock University, Transfer Applicants, and Pathways/Agreements please visit Brock’s website or consult our online viewbook at ViewBook (PDF). Page 90 and 91 has specific information regarding Transfer Applicants.

About Brock University

Our goal is to help all Aboriginal students, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit, make the transition to the Brock University community, and to provide support and resources to enhance their academic success and cultural identity at Brock. AbSS recognizes that the transition may be difficult due to differing cultures and perspectives. We offer social and academic supports in a culturally sensitive manner to encourage Aboriginal students to maintain their identity within the university setting. We also work closely with Aboriginal community partners to enhance the success of both current and prospective students.
