Pathways to University

Start With A College Diploma And Add A Degree

A wide range of university transfer agreements allow you to start at Fleming College, get the benefit of hands-on, applied learning, and then move on with advanced standing to university. Earn a degree in a field related to your college studies – in less time, and at less cost. More than 25 universities recognize our diplomas for credit, and the list is growing. Depending on your program, you may be able to study at a university in a different province, or a different country.

Getting Started

If you decide you want to go to university to get your degree, there are a number of ways you can research information specific to your needs, depending on your current post-secondary education and the diploma you hold:

  • Start by looking at your program page on our website to learn more about articulation agreements available to your program of study. This information is located near the end of your program page, under Transfer Agreements.
  • Read the articulation agreements carefully.
  • Visit the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer website at www.ontransfer.ca to find the most updated information about current articulation agreements with Ontario universities.
  • Remember to also check the university website. This link is usually available by clicking on the university links and/or university logo on the Pathways to University pages of the Fleming College website 
  • Contact the university of your interest. It’s important to ask as many questions as possible before making a decision. The Admissions Office should be able to connect you with a contact to answer your questions about admission requirements and help you confirm whether a certain program is the right choice for you. Make this connection early so that you have access to the information you need.

What To Do Next

Once you have decided which university and degree you would like to pursue, your next step is to apply.

The Ontario Universities Application Centre (OUAC) functions as a centralized admission centre for all universities in Ontario. Although OUAC controls the application process, it doesn’t make any admission decisions. Therefore, for admission questions and support documentation your main contact is the Admissions Office at the university where you are applying. You can apply to Ontario universities at www.ouac.on.ca

It is important to observe application deadlines, which may vary from university to university.
