- The transfer student must meet the High School Percentage Requirement of the CIC in the year he/she received their high school certificate.
- The student must provide an official transcript from the previous educational institution he/she was in and it must be translated to English in a certified center, together with the course description for each subject he studied, and an official student status from the previous educational institution he/she transferring from.
- Students in the Dual-Degree must have their transfer credits approved by the Academic Vice President.

- An initial credit transfer is made to help in the advising process. However, the actual transfer of credits is pending to the Ministry approval in the case of the Dual-Degree and CIC regular program Students.
- Courses transferred appear on the student Canadian Transcript as transfer credit (TC) and are not counted in the overall GPA.
- Students dismissed from an educational institution or who have exceeded their failure allowed times (2 consecutive years) can be admitted to the CIC as follows:
- The student will be accepted as a new student and in a different major.
- Application for transfer should be made within the same year of dismissal or within a maximum period of one year from dismissal.
- They get proof that they have been registered in the educational institution they are transferring from in the year preceding their application in the CIC.

- No students can be transferred in the 4th year in Business, in the 4th and 5th year in Engineering or in the 4th year in Mass Communication.
- All transfer students applying for admission must sit for a placement exam in English & Math, unless exempted. Results of the exams are usually provided within 72 hours and will be available on the CIC Website. The results of the placement exam will determine where students are placed academically whether to be enrolled as a regular student or to take some non- credit courses to improve their English level and/or Math.
- Students must not withdraw their file from the institution they are transferring from until they get the Ministry approval and or the Canadian University approval.
After the Ministry and/or Canadian approval, transfer students are responsible to refer to the Student Affairs Department to pick up a letter by which they can withdraw their files from the educational institution they transferred from. This is their total responsibility and cannot be done by the College.
