What is a block transfer or 2+2?

Some institutions have formal agreements in place to help students who want to continue their education after completing a diploma. These are called Articulation Agreements or 2+2s. 

Community Colleges in all four Atlantic provinces have articulation agreements with many Nova Scotia universities. In most cases, two-year diploma graduates may apply for admission and be recognized for up to two years of a four-year degree in the specified university's program. For example, if you complete a Business Administration diploma at Nova Scotia Community College, you may be able to transfer that block of credits towards earning a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Acadia University with just another two years of study.

Students must meet the admission requirements for that university. Your grades, program, and other factors have an impact on whether a course taken at one institution is accepted at another. The final decision on which credits, what equivalencies and how credits will be assigned will be made by the institution to which you are transferring the credits. 


Select a college to see a list of programs that have articulation agreements in place with Nova Scotia universities and contact the institution where you want to pursue a degree for more information.​
