What is a block transfer?

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. They are between two (or more) institutions and allow credits from a specific program successfully completed at one institution to be credited towards advanced standing in a specific program at another.

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. Students must meet the admission requirements for that university.

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.​
