A Letter of Permission is required if a student wishes to enroll in a course at another institution while currently studying at the University of Manitoba.

University 1 students are required to meet with a U1 Academic Advisor prior to submitting a Letter of Permission application. University 1 students may be permitted to register in a maximum of one course at another post-secondary institution on a Letter of Permission.

To qualify for a Letter of Permission, University 1 students must:

  • have completed at least 24 credit hours of courses at the U of M with all grades posted in Aurora. Courses that are in progress, identified as VW, or transferred into the U of M do not contribute to the minimum credit hour requirement.
  • have an institutional Cumulative GPA (CGPA) at the U of M of 2.0 or higher, and be a student in good academic standing.
  • not have a hold on their student account that prevents registration.
  • meet all high school and university-level prerequisites for the equivalent course at the U of M.
  • demonstrate that:
    • the requested course is required for admission to their target program at the U of M
    • there is no option to complete the requested course (or an accepted alternate) at the U of M before the next application deadline
    • the specific course is the only admission requirement that has not yet been completed (i.e., the student has completed all other admission requirements and has achieved the minimum AGPA for application.)

University 1 students who do not meet the above noted qualifying conditions, are not allowed to study at another institution on a Letter of Permission.
