Subject to the residency requirement of the Department/Program, students registered in a master's or a doctoral program at Queen's University may be permitted to study at another approved university, institution, library or laboratory under the conditions listed below. Full-time off-campus registration must be recommended by the Department/Program via submission of the Request for Full Time Study Off Campus form. The request must be approved by the School of Graduate Studies.
a If a graduate student wishes to take a graduate course at another university in Ontario, such study may be carried out under the Ontario Universities Visiting Graduate Student Plan. This plan allows a graduate student of an Ontario university to take graduate courses at another Ontario university while remaining registered at the home university. The plan allows the student to bypass the usual application for admission procedures to the host university and facilitates transfer of course credits to the home university. The student pays fees to the home university and is classed as 'visiting graduate student' at the host university, to which no fees are paid. The student must make application for study under this Plan by completion of a special application form which is available at departmental /program offices or from the School of Graduate Studies. Students may not audit courses under this plan nor enroll in any courses which are not to be credited towards their degree program. The student must be registered at Queen's as full-time off-campus.
b If a graduate student registered in a graduate program at Queen's University wishes to study at another approved university or academic institution outside Ontario, the student must register as a full-time student at the other university or institution and pay the fees required by that university. Full-time off-campus registration at Queen's University must be maintained during the period spent at the other university or institution, but exemption will be granted from Queen's University tuition fees for that period. Full- time off- campus status must be requested and granted. Granting a tuition waiver under this regulation is normally agreed to only once during a student's graduate program. See the General Regulation Full- Time, a
c If a student wishes to study at a library, laboratory or institution outside Queen's University, full-time off-campus registration at Queen's must be maintained and normal tuition fees must be paid to Queen's University, less any obligatory fees charged by the library, laboratory or institution in question. The student will conduct such study under the continued supervision of the Queen's department/program. Full- time off- campus status must be requested and granted.
