Other Pathways in Post-Secondary
Did you know many of Ontario Colleges offered bachelor degrees just as universities do? These programs are 4 years and the bachelor degree is the same as a university bachelor degree. Colleges also offer pathways to universities where in many programs they have an agreement with a particular university or universities to recognize and accept credits from the college program towards the university program. This often means you can enter a university program in its third year after completing a college degree. These agreements are called Articulation Agreements.
