CONCORD, ON, April 2, 2019 – Yorkville University is proud to announce a new partnership with the Catholic Principal’s Council | Ontario (CPCO), which will allow more students to seamlessly transfer from select CPCO programs into Yorkville’s Master of Education.  

Effective as of Jan. 1, 2019, CPCO students can now transfer up to two completed Principal Qualification Program (PQP) courses to Yorkville University to count as electives towards their Master of Education. Transfer credit will be assessed at the time of admission.  

Under the partnership, CPCO students admitted to Yorkville University will also receive a 20 per cent tuition bursary.   

“We are delighted to support the Catholic Principals’ Council | Ontario through this new partnership that offers a 20% tuition bursary to its qualifying membership,” said Dr. Ellyn Lyle, the Dean of the Faculty of Education at Yorkville University.  “We look forward to welcoming these new students into our programs and remain steadfastly committed to the provision of meaningful graduate education through our accessible, rigorous, and flexible programs.”
