Q: I am an English student at the St. George campus and would like to take courses at another Canadian or American university for transfer credit. How do I obtain authorization?
You should contact your College Registrar about the number of courses you may take elsewhere and request a Letter of Permission to confirm acceptability of those courses for transfer credit. For detailed information about Letters of Permission and transfer credit, please refer to the guidelines on the Registrar’s Office web site at: www.artsci.utoronto.ca. St. George students may also take courses at UTM and UTSC. ENG transfer credits, except ENG100H1, ENG185Y1 and their exclusions, will be accepted toward our programs. The ENG transfer credit will indicate which program group it fits into, if any.
