Course Credit for Military Training

Yorkville University recognizes the value of military training. Canadian Forces members applying to Yorkville University are eligible for a significant transfer of credit from military training to be applied towards degree programs.

Using the National Advanced Placement and Prior Learning (N-APPL) portal, students are able to have their military credit conveniently assessed, so they can lower their total tuition and graduate faster.

Military Deployment Policy

Canadian Forces members who cannot finish a course due to deployment can use tuition credits from the incomplete course without penalty.

Also, students unable to finish a course due to deployment will not be assigned a ‘withdrawn’ or ‘failed’ status on the course but will be granted an opportunity to retake the course with a clean transcript.

Tuition paid for courses will be credited to their next courses when they return from deployment. The tuition credit will take into account any refunds issued for the impacted courses.
