It is strongly recommended that students spend a term studying abroad. Graduate courses taken through exchange agreements or at accredited Latin American and Caribbean universities will count towards the University of Guelph degree. According to the University of Guelph regulations, exchange students usually take regularly scheduled courses at the host university and are subject to the policies and regulations of that institution. Grades are forwarded to the home institution at the end of the study period with students receiving a pass, fail or outstanding notation on their transcripts. LACS graduate students have the opportunity to take their electives and courses of interest in the second term at the following universities with which the University of Guelph has exchange agreement:
