This page provides a step-by-step guide for completing your credit transfer and credit equivalency applications.
(If you have failed a course at พรพรสำฦต that is required for graduation and you want to take an equivalent course at another post-secondary institution, please refer to the pre-approval of credit instruction guidelines. Please click here for detailed instructions.)

*Note for Professional and Part-time Learning (Continuing Education) students:
We will also accept RPL applications from students who intend to complete the Educational Assistant or Early Childhood Education programs through Continuing Education/PPL (part-time). Other Continuing Education/PPL programs are not eligible for RPL at this time. Please note you must be registered in at least one course in order to access the application form.
**Note regarding in-progress pre-requisite courses:
You may submit an application for credit transfer or credit equivalency while you are in the process of completing the required pre-requisites, however, your application will remain on hold until you are able to provide proof that you have been successful in the pre-requisite course.
Review the Previously Evaluated Courses list (also called the “Master List”) to see if your previous courses have already been approved for credit toward an พรพรสำฦต course. Click this link and enter your login details to view the list:
For help understanding how to use the Previously Evaluated Courses list, .
The list of previously evaluated courses is for INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY and is being made available to assist you in identifying possible credit transfers and/or equivalencies you may be eligible to receive. Although every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of this data, errors may exist.
Even though courses may be listed as approved on the list, students MUST submit an RPL application to obtain credit transfer, credit equivalency, or pre-approval.
If your course is not on the Previously Evaluated Courses list, you should use the View Course Profile feature on the RPL Portal to obtain a copy of the course outline for the พรพรสำฦต course for which you are seeking credit. This will help you to better understand the course competencies and learning outcomes you are expected to achieve.

on how to search for your course profile.
Next, compare the competencies and learning outcomes listed on the พรพรสำฦต outline with the prior learning you have achieved through your post-secondary coursework, work experience, or informal learning. If at least 80% of the competencies, scope, and depth of learning match, you should consider submitting an RPL application.
IMPORTANT: Submit one RPL application per พรพรสำฦต course
You must submit a separate application form for EACH พรพรสำฦต course you are seeking credit for. If you use one form to apply for credit toward more than one พรพรสำฦต course, your application will be rejected.
Are you submitting formal learning (post-secondary courses) for evaluation?
If you are submitting one or more previously completed courses for evaluation, you must include the following supporting documentation with your application:
Are you submitting work or life experience and/or non-formal learning for evaluation?
If you are submitting experiential and/or non-formal learning for evaluation, your supporting documentation must adhere to the following guidelines:
Do you need to submit English translations of your supporting documents?
All documents submitted with your RPL application must be in English. If your original document is not in English, you must provide an official/professional translation along with the original untranslated document. Any documents that have not been translated by a professional translator will be rejected.
Before you apply, .
Be sure to have all your supporting documents ready so you can submit your application as early as possible.
Note: If your course is short (1-2 weeks), you must apply before the date the course is scheduled to end. We will not accept applications for courses that are nearly or fully completed. Please submit your application as early as possible to avoid being denied for this reason.
When you submit the application form, you will receive an acknowledgement email confirming that we received your application. Please add "@nbcc.ca" to your safe sender email list and check your junk folder regularly in case our messages end up there.
If your application is approved, you will receive an email notification with instructions on how to indicate your acceptance or rejection of the offer. If you accept the offer, your transcript will be updated with a CR for credit transfer or EQ for credit equivalency. The grade you achieved in your previous course is not indicated on the transcript or included in your GPA.
If your application is denied, you may appeal the decision if you can provide new evidence of your prior learning. All appeal decisions are final. For details about the appeal process, see the Frequently Asked Questions.
