Ontario Visiting Graduate Students (OVGS)

The Visiting Graduate Student Plan allows a graduate student of an Ontario University (Home University) to take graduate courses at another Ontario University (Host University) while remaining registered at his/her own University. The plan allows the student to bypass the usual application for admission procedures and resultant transfer of credit difficulties. The student pays fees to his/her Home University and is classed as a "visiting graduate student" at the host University where he/she pays no fees. If non-Lakehead University course(s) are taken in a graduate student's final term, the official transcript is to be received in Enrolment Services by May 1st for spring convocation and October 1st for fall graduation. It is the responsibility of the student to provide the transcript.

ELIGIBILITY - Applicants must be registered as full-time students in a Lakehead University graduate program and have completed at least 1 term of study in that program at Lakehead University.

A maximum of one full course equivalent may be taken through OVGS.
