Trent transfer-in to TES
There is an opportunity to apply to transfer-in to the Teacher Education Stream after completing your first year in another program at Trent. You can apply to transfer-in by completing the “Transfer into a Capped Program” form on the myTrent portal (available from February-May each year). We require a minimum average of 70% across your first year courses and no more than 5.0 credits completed (including transfer credits). If you have more than 5.0 credits complete your application will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
The School of Education & Professional Learning has developed an admissions policy regarding equitable representation of groups underrepresented in the teaching profession. Applicants who are of Indigenous heritage, persons of a visible minority or persons with a disability are encouraged to apply for equity admission in the Teacher Education Stream Program. Please note that completion of the Equity form is voluntary. Equity admission applicants who meet admissions requirements and deadlines, but whose academic average is below the minimum 75% required will still be eligible for consideration.
If you wish to apply for Equity Admission, you may submit the Equity Admission Form through your myTrent portal. The Equity Admission form can be found under the Academics tab in the portal. Equity Admission forms must be received by February 22, 2018.
