TEMPORARY TRANSFER OF CREDIT PROCESS - April 22 | 12:00 PM ET
The Canadian Payroll Association continues to monitor the evolving impacts of COVID-19 (coronavirus), and
take appropriate action to protect the health and safety of the payroll community. The well-being of our
members, volunteers, affiliates, and stakeholders is our priority.
A number of post-secondary institutions have temporarily changed their grading system. As a result of this
change, some students will be provided with the choice of being graded on a “pass/fail” or
“credit received” basis instead of receiving the usual numerical grade. Generally the Canadian
Payroll Association requires that students achieve a final mark of 65 per cent for each course. In light of
these unprecedented circumstances, the Canadian Payroll Association will accept any approved transfer of
credit course(s) from students during the Winter 2020 semester who were granted a “Pass” or
“Credit Received” final result.
The Canadian Payroll Association will accept transcripts or grade reports electronically from post-secondary
institutions until schools reopen. Transcripts will only be accepted electronically if emailed directly from
the post-secondary institution’s Office of the Registrar to firstname.lastname@example.org
SELF PROCTORING - March 23, 2020 | 4:00 PM EDT
In order to protect the health and safety of the Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) students of the
Canadian Payroll Association, we are temporarily implementing self-proctoring for all PCP course final exams
in the wake of the COVID-19 (coronavirus).
To ensure social distancing, students are encouraged to input their own contact information when registering
a proctor. The ‘Register Proctor’ button will continue to be on the ‘Your
Courses’ page under the ‘Enter’ button.
On the day of the exam, the student will log in to the course in the usual manner. Once the student clicks
on the ‘Final Exam’ link, the system will request the proctor code which the student will input
to start the exam.
All other rules surrounding the writing of the final exam are still required to be followed. No other
applications or browsers are permitted to be open during the exam, the exam is closed book, must be
completed independently, within the time limit and using only the following aids: the Tax Tables,
Rates and Forms booklet (with no added written or inserted documentation), blank scrap paper, and a

For all in-class students, given that most post-secondary institutions in Canada have made the difficult
decision to shut temporarily, including transitioning their in-class students to online learning, we are
permitting all PCP students to complete their course at home. This includes the completion of the
