What is Transfer Credit?

Transfer credit is one type of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process at Red River College.

Transfer credit is the recognition of credit for courses or programs completed at another recognized post-secondary institution or in another Red River College program.

Transfer credits are given when the learning meets the standards required by the program in which the credit is sought. The course(s) must have been of equivalent credit hours and with equivalent learning outcomes or course content.
