University, Transfer Credits, and Prior Learning Assessments

Our Grads Earn University Credits

Graduates of CCMH’s Massage Therapy School in Halifax can now earn 54 credit hours – approximately 2 years of transfer credit – toward a Bachelor of Science of Kinesiology degree  (BScKin) from the University of New Brunswick.

Our graduates are now able to earn 69 credits towards a Bachelor of Health Science or 75 credits towards a Bachelor of General Science, both from Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC.  This works out to be approximately 2 years of schooling towards a degree.

Also, in conjunction with the Office of the Registrar, Athabasca University, CCMH graduates are eligible to receive transfer credits toward another university degree. Recipients of our Diploma Program can receive 30 credits toward Athabasca’s Bachelor of Science in Human Science. We are continuing to establish transfer arrangements with other Canadian universities.

Transfer Credits

One great advantage of joining the CCMH family of Colleges is ease of transfer of massage therapy courses from one campus to another. With programs available in Halifax, Toronto, Cambridge, Victoria and Vancouver, we have you covered . . . from Coast to Coast.

We also welcome applications from students who have attended other Colleges of Massage Therapy which offer recognized Diploma Programs.  An applicant of CCMH who has successfully completed prior post-secondary education similar to the education taught at CCMH may also request a Prior Learning Assessment (PLA).

It is the applicant’s responsibility to request a PLA in a timely manner when submitting their initial application.  This request must be submitted prior to their registration with CCMH.  PLA’s are only done upon receipt of an official request and all supporting documents.

It may take up to three weeks to complete the PLA.  Once a student is registered in the CCMH Massage Therapy Diploma Program, they can no longer request a PLA.  Each PLA application will be carefully considered on an individual basis.  There is a fee for any challenge exams granted through the PLA process.

We will carefully consider each transfer application on an individual basis.  A Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) application may be requested from the Admissions Department, or you may click here to download a copy: PLA Application Form 2016-17

There is a fee for any challenge exams granted by the PLA.
