    Johnathan Williams - Transferable Credits

    Has this happened to you or anybody you know? You start first year university at (just say) Dalhousie and then decide for your second year that you really would like to go to St. FX, so you transfer over only to find out too late they won't accept your English or French credit. This has been both confusing and the way things have worked for the last thirty-five years and students have had enough. The Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission (MPHEC) released a report on today, Portable Learning: University Students Granted Credit for Prior Post-Secondary Education which addresses this problem. We contacted Jonathan Williams, Executive Director of Students Nova Scotia for reaction.
