Visiting, Transfer, and Full Degree Students

Visiting Students

Visiting students from other post-secondary institutions may apply for non-degree studies in the Faculty of Arts and Science using a letter of permission. Visiting students are currently restricted to online courses offered through Continuing and Distance Studies and to courses being offered at the Bader International Study Centre.

Students may apply directly to these programs as visiting students.

Transfer Students

The Faculty of Arts and Science has limited capacity to accommodate transfer students from other accredited post-secondary institutions and from other Faculties and Schools at Queen's. Consequently, the admission process is highly competitive and preference is given to those applicants with the strongest qualifications.

Due to enrollment pressure on campus, not all Arts and Science departments, programs and Plans are able to accommodate upper-year transfer students.

The Faculty of Arts and Science website provides more information for students looking to transfer.
