Students enrolling in Laurier’s Game Design and Development program after completing a two- or three-year diploma program may earn up to 6.0 or 7.5 transfer credits (respectively). The specific transfer credits granted will be determined based on your unique academic journey and will be outlined in a transfer credit assessment that you will receive along with your offer letter.
Throughout your Game Design and Development degree, you will take courses in topics such as web game design development, UX research methods, ethics in game design and graphic design. Once you have accepted your offer, please consult Academic Advising and our Course Registration Guide to determine the specific courses you'll need to take during your time at Laurier.
If you have additional questions about your transition to Laurier, financial aid for transfer students or transfer credit evaluation, visit our transfer students website. If you are interested in transferring into this program with an academic history different than what is outlined above, apply using the undergraduate application form and your transfer credits will be assessed on an individual basis and reported to you, along with your offer letter, upon admission to Laurier.
