Visiting and Exchange Students

Visiting Student – Letter of Permission

Applicants who intend to register in courses at Brandon University and transfer credit elsewhere must apply as a visiting student and obtain a Letter of Permission from the Registrar of their home university (which guarantees transfer credit for courses taken).  The Letter of Permission should be submitted directly from the home institution to the Admissions Office.  An Offer of Admission cannot be issued until this letter has been submitted. Letter of Permission should indicate either the date when the letter will expire or the list of approved courses to be taken.

If applicable, English language proficiency test scores must come directly from the testing centre in a sealed envelope, except TOEFL which may also be sent electronically directly through TOEFL (ETS) if preferred.

Letter of Permission – Courses Taken Elsewhere by Brandon University Students

Current Brandon University students who wish to take a course(s) at another post-secondary institution for transfer of credit to their degree program here at BU must obtain a Letter of Permission before they make application to the other institution.  Complete information on requirements and submitting a request is found online on the Letter of Permission page.
