Transfer credits

The Canadian Police College promotes professionalization in policing through its articulation agreements with other national and international academic postsecondary institutions. These agreements allow students to apply credits from the college toward a specific program of study at another academic institution.

A list of the college's academic partnerships is provided below. Please refer to the description of each course for details on the option of transferring credits (where applicable). For courses where no established agreement has been identified, contact the learning institution you want to attend about a Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition process that may transfer credits for the college courses.
