About Us

Established in 2011, the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT) was created to enhance academic pathways and reduce barriers for students looking to transfer among Ontario's 45 public colleges and universities.

Alongside our members and stakeholders, we do this by:
 

  • Supporting projects aimed at creating and expanding credit transfer pathways and improving our understanding of student mobility and the student transfer experience;

  • Engaging Ontario's regions and communities through facilitated groups;
  • Collecting credit transfer data and sharing resources;

  • Hosting events that brings together credit transfer experts from across the province; and,

  • Connecting students to transfer opportunities through ONTransfer.ca
