Degree Completion for CGA Students

The Nipissing University School of Business (NUSB) welcomes students who have taken courses directly through the CGA Program of Professional Studies and who still need to obtain their degree. As you are aware, most students intending to transition from the CGA Program to the CPA Program will have until June 1, 2020 to complete the degree requirement. See CPA website for deadlines here.​

Students who have completed courses directly through CGA, may be eligible for transfer credits towards either of the following Nipissing degrees:

Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)

a 120 credit (4 year) degree

Bachelor of Commerce (BComm)

a 90 credit (3 year) degree

​Note: Since the BComm is a 90 credit degree, this option is only available for students who transition from the CGA Program into the CPA Program prior to August 31, 2015. If you are a CGA student in good standing as of August 31, 2015, you can still complete a 90 credit hour degree by June 1, 2020 to satisfy the entrance requirements for the CPA Professional Education Program (PEP).

Applicants with CGA foundation and advanced studies courses may be transferred to Nipissing University for credit. See transfer credit eligibility for CGA Ontario courses taken here.​ 

Additional transfer credits may also be possible if you have already completed either a 2-year or 3-year diploma program at a recognized Ontario community college.

Note: Nipissing University degrees have a “residency requirement”. This means that a minimum number of courses need to be completed at Nipissing University in order to graduate with a Nipissing degree, regardless of the amount of credit granted from outside sources. It is not guaranteed that all advanced standing/transfer credit courses can count towards the degree program.
