Start your commerce degree here! Medicine Hat College has transfer agreements in place with several institutions which means you can take up to two years of a bachelor's degree at MHC and then transfer to one of several universities.

Admission to these programs is competitive, and we recommend that you meet with an academic advisor from Medicine Hat College and from the university you plan to attend regarding admission requirements and course selections. Navigating a transfer can be very complex, and course selection is very important to ensure you meet the admission requirements of the institution you wish to apply to.
