Credit for Courses

Not all courses taken at partner universities are eligible for transfer back to The University of Manitoba. In order to get credit for courses, students participating in an International Center Exchange must submit an application for a Letter of Permission (L.O.P.) form to their exchange coordinators.

Letter Of Permission for Transfer of Credit

Students are responsible for filling out the Letter of Permission form, collecting detailed course descriptions and submitting the completed form to the student exchange coordinators (not the Registrar’s Office). If a student is unable to find enough course information the exchange coordinators can provide further assistance. Courses will not be approved without sufficient information.

The Letter of Permission form is available from the Registrar’s Office or from the student exchange coordinators at the International Center.

It can take anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months for a course to be evaluated so it is a good idea to get the process started as soon as full course outlines are available from the destination university.

Once the evaluation has been completed, the Registrar’s Office will mail a letter outlining the list of approved courses to the student’s permanent address. Students should make sure that their address in Aurora is current.

Grade Transfer

Students need to ensure that transcripts from their destination university are sent to the exchange coordinators at the University of Manitoba at the end of each exchange term. Grades will be transferred back and will be included in the student’s University of Manitoba grade point average.

Selecting Courses

Students should meet with an academic advisor from their faculty at the University of Manitoba prior to selecting courses for their exchange term. Knowing which courses are still required and how many credits are needed for graduation can help students make better choices. Students may also want to bring along course descriptions for the destination university in order to get some sense of how they might transfer back.
