A Letter of Permission allows a student to enrol in courses at another university that may be considered for credit towards their degree at their home university (subject to faculty or program regulations and approvals). In order to be eligible for admission to a  university on a Letter of Permission basis, students must be in “good standing” (ie. not on probation) at their home university, complete a Letter of Permission application form and obtain the approval of their academic advisor in advance of the application deadline at the “host” institution.

Students intending to study at Wilfrid Laurier University on a Letter of Permission must initiate the process through their home university’s Registrar’s Office. Student must submit the Application & Intent to Register form, along with the Letter of Permission from the home university. Please note that transcripts are not required. Both must be submitted together before registration can occur, and class enrolment is always subject to space availability in the course(s) requested.

Laurier students looking to take course(s) at another university should complete the outgoing Letter of Permission form and obtain approval from their academic advisor in advance of the application deadline at the host institution. Please email the Registrar’s Office if you are unable to access the PDF form.
