Letters of Permission and Transfer Credit (Post-Admission)


  • Course equivalencies for Korea University and Yonsei University can be found on Transfer Explorer.
  • Summer Studies Opportunities - For students interested in taking courses overseas, the Centre for International Experience (CIE) offers many study abroad opportunities. Such studies are considered post-admission transfer credit. See the Faculty of Arts and Science Calendar for further details. Alternatively, the Woodsworth College Summer Abroad program offers overseas opportunities while obtaining FAS credits. 
  • Summer studies in China – As noted above you should explore the CIE offerings through the University’s partner institutions in China.  Alternatively, WDW Study Abroad offers courses in China over the summer session which are UofT credits.  Outside of these opportunities, transfer credit for studies completed in China during the summer session will only be considered where the courses are part of the degree program of a degree granting recognized institution and where proof of registration and issuance of the final official transcript is through the Registrar’s Office of that institution.
  • Acceptable Summer studies in China options for post-admission transfer credit:
    • Participate through an exchange partner institution
    • Apply for a Letter of Permission through a recognized post-secondary institution offering exchange opportunities through their study abroad.

    To gain post-admission transfer credit from summer session studies in China, the Faculty will consider only the following two options.

    1. Participation through a partner exchange institution. One can either consider going through CIE or independently. The deadline for applications through CIE is March 10th. Acceptable institutions:
      1. Fudan University
      2. Peking University

      In order to receive 1.0 FCE from either Fudan University or Peking University you will need to enroll in 6.0 units. Most courses carry a credit weight of 2.0 units. Therefore, you will need to complete at least two 2.0 unit courses for a half credit and three 2.0 unit courses for a full credit. Check Transfer Explorer for previously assessed credits. As these institutions are partner institutions, verification of studies through a government agency is not required. In the event you decide to complete studies at either one of these institutions independently, you will need to apply for post-admission transfer credit upon your return.

    2. Participation through the study abroad program through one of these institutions:
      1. Portland State University, OR
      2. Texas Wesleyan University, TX
      3. Bridgewater State University, MA

      You will need to apply for a Letter of Permission for this option.

      These are some of the options the Faculty of Arts and Science will be considering for post-admission transfer credits completed in the Summer Session in China.
