A letter of permission is a letter provided by the University you are currently attending (your home university), which gives you permission to take a course or courses at another university. This ensures that your home university will give you credit for the course(s) you completed on a letter of permission. Often, students who spend the summer in a different town/city from where their home university is, take courses on a letter of permission at the local university with the credits being transferred back to their home university.
Detailed information about the process that York students need to follow to request a Letter of Permission (LOP) is available on the Registrar’s Office website.
The Ryerson-York Exchange program allows you to expand your university experience by taking courses at Ryerson University that will count toward your York University degree. The York/Ryerson course exchange allows most students to take up to 24 credits at Ryerson, without having to apply for a letter of permission.
As a student in the program, you will also have access to Ryerson student services, library and athletic facilities.
