3.1 - Letters of Permission

A student may be permitted to take undergraduate courses elsewhere for credit toward a BNSc Degree. Please note: Courses taken at another university will not contribute to Yearly or Graduation Honours (Please see Academic Regulation 23). The student must obtain a letter of permission from the School of Nursing Undergraduate Academic Advisor prior to enrolling in classes at another post-secondary institution. There is a non-refundable application fee for a letter of permission. Any approved course taken from another university transfers as a credit only (TR), not as a grade. In order for a credit to be transferred, students must achieve a minimum GPA of 1.7 in the course and submit their official transcript to the Academic Advisor at the School of Nursing within one month of completion of the approved course.

To obtain a letter of permission, a student must be in good academic standing and have completed a minimum of 30.0 units toward their BNSc Program.
