1. Complete an online "Change of Plan Request" Form, selecting "Certificate Request Application"
2. Apply for an International Letter of Permission (if necessary)
If you are an Arts and Science student and decide to complete your Study Abroad component through a program other than the Bader International Study Centre or a Queen's University departmental study-abroad program, ensure that you apply for an International Letter of Permission from the International Programs Office. Your study abroad credits will be assessed at this time and we will confirm whether they meet the Certificate requirements. If you are a student from another Faculty or School, consult with both your Faculty advisor and the International Programs Office. You must complete the equivalent of 6.0 approved units during your period of study abroad in order to qualify for the Certificate.
3. Apply to Graduate
Upon completion of the required 15.0 units for the International Studies Certificate, apply through the SOLUS Student Centre.
