Q: What is University-Transfer program? How many maximum credits can I transfer from college/university to other universities?
A: University Transfer Programs are offered by colleges and universities for the procedure of granting credit to a student for educational experiences or courses undertaken at another institution. Transfer credit is not guaranteed when a student transfers from one institution to another. Universities only accept students transfer up to 60 credits from other post-secondary institution. Whether the students will be accepted or not depend on their GPA based on the UT courses they take.
Q: What is GPA?
A: Grade Point Average (GPA) is commonly used by potential employers or further post-secondary institutions to assess and compare applicants. A Cumulative Grade Point Average is the mean GPA from all academic terms within a given academic year, whereas the GPA may only refer to one term. In Canada, grade point averages vary by province, by level of education, by institution, even by different faculties in the same institution.
Q: Do I need to pay tuition first before registering courses?
A: Yes. International students must pay tuitions before being able to register courses.
Q: Can I take courses that require pre-requisite course but without taking it?
A: You have to talk to your advisor or the teacher. Some schools are flexible if you can show equivalent learning. If the course is a lower level course (like ENG 105), some prerequisites (like ENG 090, ENG 095 and ENG 099) are listed to restrict enrolment of students who first must complete remedial or preparatory courses before they can take the 100 levels. This may not be the case, but if it is, you should be able to take the course you are interested in without special permission if the prerequisites don't apply to you.
Q: Can I work after school or during weekend?
A: Yes, you can work off campus with a work permit. You are limited to 20 hours a week during times when school is in session, and you can work full time when it is not in session. This link will give you the information needed to apply:

Q: How can I get a student bus-pass?
A: First, your schools must offer student bus-pass because not every school offers student bus-pass. Second, you have to be full-time student to get a bus-pass. Student bus-pass is usually valid for 1 to 2 semesters depending on the number of terms students register. Students will get their bus-pass once they get their student ID card.
Q: What is co-op education? Do I need a work permit to apply for the program?
A: Cooperative education is a structured method of combining classroom-based education with practical work experience. A cooperative education experience, commonly known as a "co-op", provides academic credit for structured job experience. Cooperative education is taking on new importance in helping young people to make the school-to-work transition, service learning, and experiential learning initiatives.
If you are not a Canadian citizen or Landed Immigrant, you must apply for a work permit to work in Canada. Once you have been accepted into the Co-op program, your Employment Development Officer (EDO) will provide you with the appropriate application form to apply for a work permit. This should be completed as soon as you are accepted into the program. Once the application is completed, it can take between 6-8 weeks or longer to get a work permit and you will not be permitted to accept a job until the work permit is in your possession. Students can click here go online to apply for different type of work permits.
Q: How do I qualify to apply for post-graduate work permit?
A: The CIC website here listed all the details for applicants who want to apply for post-graduation work permit. Students who are able to get the post-graduation work permit are allowed to work in Canada for 3 years. In these 3 years, students can also become immigrants through different types of immigration programs including Canadian Experience Class(CEC) and Provincial Nominee Program(PNP) program.
