Credit Transfers

We encourage students of all ages and backgrounds to study with this university and we know that many people have made significant achievements either through work or private study.


If this applies to you, you can ask to have it taken into consideration while making an application to Stratford University for undergraduate or graduate programs.

Prior Learning Assessment


Stratford University gives you the opportunity of applying your learning experiences and work to receive undergraduate college credit through prior learning assessment (PLA).


Credits may apply towards either the lower or upper division credit requirements of the undergraduate degree programs unless otherwise specified in policy or limited by regulation.


By applying your past experience towards a degree you can save money and time.


You may be able to fulfil some elective, interdisciplinary, and/or general education courses by going through the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process. To be eligible for PLA credits, you must have submitted your transcripts to the University, and you must complete the remaining general education or elective credits required to earn your degree.


Foreign Students


If you’ve previously attended other educational institutions, we offer a variety of services to help you in the admissions process. For example you may have completed the first year of a degree at another university and want to transfer this credit to your degree at the Stratford University. Or you may have completed a diploma, professional or vocational qualification and want to transfer this credit to the Stratford University.
