A Letter of Permission (LOP) is a document that states that a post secondary institution will allow the course be transfered in. It is issued by the post-secondary institution the student is enrolled in a program at. 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. While most students who submit a LOP would like the requested course(s) fit as a substitution into their program regulations, receiving the letter does not guarantee the course will fit.
There are two types of Letter of Permission: Outgoing and Incoming.
Information effective Sept. 1, 2020 to Aug. 31, 2021.
