Exemption status is granted if the course has a minimum of 70% equivalency in the course material required. When exemption status is awarded, no mark is reported on the transcript and the grade point average (GPA) is not affected. The college will consider exemptions for courses if the student received a passing grade.
Transfer of credit status is awarded for any CNA course with the same course description and course number. When Transfer of Credit is awarded, the college will accept the passing grade as awarded by the institution and this mark will be used in the calculation of the GPA.
To apply, complete the Application for Exemption/Credit Transfer and include the following documentation:
- Official transcript (for courses completed at other public post-secondary institutions)
- Detailed course outlines (for courses completed outside of CNA)
