Students may be authorized to take some course work at another university if registration as a visiting student is acceptable to that university. Students with poor academic performance, including those on probation or having a large number of withdrawals, will not be afforded this opportunity.
Students may apply online for such authorization by requesting a Letter of Permission through their online Student Centre. Students should check with program advisors in the Arts Students' Centre to ensure that such transfer credits advance their particular programs. Once approved students will be advised officially as to how the proposed courses will transfer and an appropriate letter will be sent to the Registrar of the other university. The Letter of Permission must be obtained before the student registers for the courses at the other institution.
It will be the responsibility of the student to ensure that an official transcript of grades is forwarded directly to the Registrar of this university in order that appropriate credit may be officially recorded.
Many grade point average calculations used by the Faculty of Arts do not include transfer courses.
