Mount Allison students planning to take courses at another accredited university for transfer credit must first obtain the registrar's approval, by completing an application for a letter of permission.  

The approval is subject to individual departmental regulations. The application process will determine transfer credit equivalency by departmental assessment. 

To obtain a letter of permission, please apply as early as possible and at least one month prior to the commencement of classes at the other institution. Fall/winter letter of permission forms will not be processed before May 15 unless there are mitigating circumstances.

Letter of permission request form  


To complete a letter of permission:
The application must be submitted to the registrar’s office with a link to the course descriptions from the online academic calendar of the host institution. Your application must be approved by the registrar. Students on Academic Probation are not eligible to take courses on Letter of Permission; exceptions must be approved by an academic dean.

When you have completed your letter of permission courses:
It is your responsibility to have an official transcript sent directly from the host institution to the registrar’s office at Mount Allison. A student’s grade report is not acceptable.
Students completing their last credits for their degree on a letter of permission must have their official transcript from the host institution sent to the registrar’s office prior to Apr. 30 for May Convocation and prior to Sept. 30 for October Convocation.
