Crediting Previous Work Experience

Can previous work experience count as a valid work term?

According to accreditation guidelines, work experience must be approved as suitable by the institution. In addition, a work term report and evaluation are required components, along with a preceding academic term. Some institutions allow students to transfer from another university or college and will recognize previous work terms that were approved by their previous institution, particularly if the program is accredited. If previous work term experience is recognized, it is usually for a maximum of one or two (2) work terms.
