Applying to University of Guelph As a Visiting Student (Letter of Permission)

If you would like to come to the University of Guelph but your home university does not have an exchange agreement with us, you can apply to study on our campus as a visiting student through what we call a Letter of Permission (LOP).  A Letter of Permission gives a student permission from their home university to take credits at the University of Guelph and transfer these credits toward their degree program.
