Letter Of Permission

Letter of Permission

Students registered in baccalaureate or applied degree, diploma, or certificate programs at Mount Royal University may be granted permission to take a limited number of courses at other recognized or accredited post-secondary institutions.

A Letter of Permission (LOP):

  • When approved, provides a guarantee that a course successfully completed at another institution will fulfill a current program requirement for graduation purposes.
  • Must be obtained prior to registering for the course(s) at another post-secondary institution.

It is the student's responsibility to review another post-secondary institution’s information on admission, registration, course description and tuition costs, prior to requesting an LOP.

An LOP does not:

  • Ensure admission to another post-secondary institution.
  • Ensure prerequisites, required by another post-secondary institution, have been previously completed.

LOP limitations:

  • The number of courses that may be completed elsewhere is limited by the number of transfer credits permitted toward a current program. 50% of the program requirements must be completed at Mount Royal.

Upon completion of a course, it is the student’s responsibility to request an official transcript be sent by the originating institution to:
