Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

About college-to-university transfer programs

Our college-to-university transfer programs allow you to transfer the credits you’ve earned in a college diploma or certificate program, toward an applicable undergraduate degree program.

We offer college graduates the following transfer opportunities:

A prescribed set of our foundational courses that leads to qualification for entry into an upper year of a degree program.

Advanced Entry
Successful applicants receive a predetermined number of transfer credits for their college diploma. They immediately enter into an upper year of a degree program.

Collaborative Bridge
Students benefit from a partnership between our university and another post-secondary institution. For example, our Collaborative Post-RPN Bridge program is offered in partnership with Durham College and Georgian College.
