Academic Regulation 3: Credit for Courses Taken Elsewhere

3.1 - Letters of Permission

A student may be permitted to take undergraduate courses elsewhere for credit toward a Queen’s BNSc Degree. However, courses taken at another university will not contribute to yearly or Graduation Honours (see Academic Regulation 22). The student must obtain a letter of permission from the School of Nursing Undergraduate Academic Advisor prior to enrolling in classes at another university. 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. For a credit to be transferred, students must achieve a minimum grade of 60% (C-) in the course and submit their official transcript to the Undergraduate Academic Advisor at the School of Nursing within 1 month of completing the approved course.

To be eligible to receive a letter of permission, a student must be in good academic standing and have completed a minimum of 30.0 units at Queen’s toward their BNSc Degree.
