If you do not have the necessary academic credentials to enter university directly, or you want to develop your skills, knowledge and self-confidence to be successful in university, this program is for you. If you have been out of school for a while and would like to pursue a new career that requires a degree, this program is also for you.

Discover new ways of seeing the world through powerful ideas in psychology, sociology, literature, and philosophy. Learn from faculty with advanced degrees who can prepare you for success in today's universities.

The cost savings of studying university-level courses at college tuition rates are considerable. And the benefits of improved confidence in your learning abilities and academic readiness are immeasurable.

The one-year University Transfer program will:

  • develop your academic readiness in core disciplines in social sciences and humanities
  • prepare you for success at university with necessary skills in research, academic writing, and critical thinking
  • provide you with a broad, multi-disciplinary curriculum to help you choose a major
  • facilitate entry to university: complete the program successfully and you earn credit for first year of Bachelor's degree courses at Trent University or Carleton University.

The General Arts and Science - University Transfer curriculum delivers more than just challenging individual courses. Academic disciplines have developed together over time. The influences they exert on one another, and their research methods and major theories, are best appreciated through an integrated program of study such as the University Transfer option. This program is unique in its emphasis on providing students with a coherent overview of Literature, Philosophy, Psychology and Sociology. These complementary courses will provide you with the opportunity to apply your learning across the curriculum. The faculty believe that the integrated design of the program will help students develop as thinkers, writers and researchers.

Your writing skills will also grow. In the classroom and outside it, written communication takes many forms - essays, laboratory reports, and practical business documentation. In the University Transfer curriculum, faculty co-ordinate their efforts to help students develop these related writing skills.

You won't have to do it all alone. With Fleming College's focus on supporting student success, our faculty team and counselors can help you navigate this journey. With this year of intellectual development and growth you will build a strong foundation for continued academic success.

Trent University Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science

This program was developed in collaboration with Trent University. As a result, Trent University will grant a total of five first year credits (in English, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, plus one unassigned credit) to graduates of this program who achieve an overall average of 70%, and no individual grade of less than 65% in their Literature, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Composition and Critical Analysis courses. Successful program graduates will have obtained the credits required for first year of Trent's Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. (Other Trent degree programs also recognize these Fleming courses for advanced standing.)

Trent University Indigenous Bachelor of Education

To be eligible, applicants are required to self-identify as First Nations, Métis or Inuit, and must also have achieved a 75% cumulative average in the University Transfer program. Successful applicants will be awarded five credits out of the 25 credit degree.

Carleton University Bachelor of Arts

At Carleton University, program graduates with an overall average of 70% or higher may be granted up to five full transfer credits, equivalent to first year towards the Bachelor of Arts degree.

A growing number of other universities recognize the program for significant credit towards their degrees.

The curriculum for this program, and its intellectual demands and rigour, closely reflect a first-year university experience. Fleming faculty who have developed the program possess the academic credentials necessary to teach these university-level courses. All of them have taught in university settings. The small class sizes and program design provide for generous interaction between students and faculty. Since you will attend all classes with the same group of students, you will come to know one another quickly, share ideas and frequently carry on academic discussions outside the classroom.

You've got to be committed to taking the time to ask questions, seek help when you need it and to do the work necessary. Due to the academic rigour of this program, you will need self-discipline and excellent time management skills. A strong interest in personal, intellectual and vocational growth will ensure that you get the most from the rich and relevant curriculum.

Plan to spend approximately $700 per year for books and supplies.
