3.3 Letter of Permission

A Letter of Permission is a document issued by the post-secondary institution the student is enrolled in a program at. It permits a credential student to take one or more courses at another institution to be used towards their credential. The Letter of Permission is a means of tracking the courses you take at other institutions. The letter also indicates to the external institution that you are a visiting student and provides you information regarding the transfer credit that will be awarded for external courses.

There are two types of Letter of Permission: Outgoing and Incoming.

If you wish to take a distance course listed on the Canadian Virtual University (CVU) website, Letter of Permission and Visiting Student Admission fees may be waived. For details, visit the CVU Letter of Permission Form page.

 

Information effective Sept. 1, 2018 to Aug. 31, 2019.
