An expanded agreement between Canadore College in North Bay, Ont. and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in Oshawa, Ont. will allow international students at Canadore increased access to college-to-university transfer programs.
Under the terms of the agreement, international students can declare their intent to pursue a UOIT undergraduate degree during their first semester of study at Canadore.
Students will automatically be considered for admission to a college-to-university transfer program at UOIT upon graduating from an applicable diploma program at Canadore.
Graduates of select Canadore diploma programs can apply credits towards nine UOIT undergraduate programs: allied health sciences, biological science, commerce, communication and digital media studies, criminology and justice, educational studies and digital technology, forensic psychology, information technology security, and political science.
“Canadore is extremely proud of our growing relationship with the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, a progressive and forward-thinking university that places value on the learning that students undertake at our college,” said Shawn Chorney, vice-president of enrolment management, indigenous and student services.
“This agreement highlights our institutions’ shared values of quality education, student access and success.”
UOIT is pleased with the partnership too.
“We are delighted to extend our partnership with Canadore College to provide new avenues for international students to pursue college-to-university transfer options,” said Dr. Deborah Saucier, provost and vice-president, academic, University of Ontario Institute of Technology.
“We look forward to continuing to build on the collaboration between our two institutions and creating a consistent, flexible and seamless system for all students.”
UOIT and Canadore are committed to providing students with flexible college-to-university transfer options, and are looking forward to more Canadore graduates pursuing undergraduate degrees at UOIT.
