Transfer Credit Database

You can search Trent's transfer credit database in order to review some of the transfer credits that you may be eligible for.  The transfer credit database is a listing of courses that Trent has previously evaluated for equivalency.  Please note: If you do not see your course listed in the transfer credit database, it probably means that we have not had an opportunity to previously evaluate your course for a transfer credit equivalency.  You may be requested to submit course syllabi.
