Fall 2020 Update
Course Delivery Summary: Online
Most of the courses in this program are well suited for online learning. In the event that a course requires an on-campus component, students will be advised as soon as possible. At this stage, we do not expect this to occur during the Fall 2020 semester.

- Details about tools and technology requirements, as well as additional course details, will be shared before the end of July.
About the Program
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. For more information on transfer agreements in Alberta, visit www.transferalberta.ca.
