College students and graduates at Lambton College, George Brown, and Fleming College now have more ways to fast track their way to earning a bachelor’s degree from Trent University with the recent establishment of 10 new transfer pathways from different programs at each partner college.
“We know that learners take many different pathways to start and finish a bachelor's degree. These newest agreements with colleges across Ontario make it easier for students to take their own unique education pathway to Trent,” said Marilyn Burns, vice president, Communications & Enrolment at Trent University. “These pathways are the latest additions to agreements that have contributed to the success of transfer students at Trent University, helping students achieve high academic standing and complete degrees faster. We’re proud of these pathways and our collaboration with colleges across the province, and the myriad ways Trent honours different learning styles and approaches to education and career upskilling.”
Graduates of Lambton College’s Environmental Technician–Water & Wastewater Systems Operations diploma now have the opportunity to transfer directly into one of two programs in the prestigious Trent School of Environment: Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Environmental & Resource Science and Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Water Sciences.

Eligible students will be awarded 5.5 credits toward either Bachelor of Science (Honours) program, accelerating the completion of the degree to within three years.
