Credit transfer & PLAR

At Conestoga you can start from where you are now and go as far as your ambition, talent and determination will take you. A certificate may lead to a diploma and a diploma may lead to a graduate certificate or to a degree from Conestoga or from another institution.

A maximum of 75 per cent of the required program courses may be completed through Credit Transfer and PLAR; 25 per cent of the program credits must be taken under the direct supervision of Conestoga faculty. All applicants with previous post-secondary education and work experience will be assessed on an individual, case-by-case basis.
