Privileged Right of Passage: Pathways between College Boreal and Laurentian University

As part of this project, we successfully developed 10 articulation agreements. Four of them are for students who have completed or will complete a one-year certificate at Collège Boréal. Previously, it was impossible for these students to transfer college credits to university programs. Now, they are eligible for up to 30 credits, which is equivalent to a full year of studies. In addition to these agreements, three agreements were developed with the Department of Psychology - one of which is a 2+2. Finally, three agreements in Physical Education and Health were improved. These agreements stand out from the others because the learning outcomes have been compared and students can take advantage of several specific credits instead of only elective credits. Most of the agreements are at the approval stage with the Senate of Laurentian University. Unfortunately, we learned in April that two steps were added to the approval process, which delayed the process. However, we are confident that the agreements will be approved by Fall 2016. In following this process, we are pleased to announce that one of the outcomes will be that all Francophone articulation agreements shall also apply on the English side - thus for any other college that offers the same program toward our Francophone and Anglophone programs (when both options exist).
