Requirements for taking spring and summer courses
You've decided to take a spring or summer course in Nova Scotia. What's next?
To take a course at a different institution than you currently attend:
- Contact your current institution and find out their rules and regulations for taking courses at another institution.
- Request a Letter of Permission (LOP) from your current institution; a LOP is a document that gives you permission to take a course or courses at a different institution with the intention of transferring the credit back to your home institution. Each college and university has specific requirements. If your current institution decides the course you want to take fits your program requirements, and meets other rules and regulations, they will give you an LOP.
- Once you have the LOP, contact the institution that offers the course and complete their application/registration process.
Tip: Begin this process early, as gathering information, getting permission, and completing forms may take some time.
For a spring or summer course at your current institution:
- Talk to your program advisor to see if the course you want to take fits your program requirements.
- If it does, register.
