Courses taken while on an international exchange are not deemed transfer credit but are considered University of Lethbridge course credit, and as such, count towards residency requirements. Non-management students, however, may have alternate residency requirements; therefore, they should consult with their academic advisor. Exchange courses are recorded differently on students' U of L transcripts as compared to courses completed at the U of L. Before applying to go on exchange, please consult your academic advisor to see what exchange courses best fit into your program.
Grades from exchange courses are not factored into a student's U of L GPA. Exchange course grades are recorded as simply a pass or fail and are not assigned a letter grade on the student’s U of L transcript.
It is not possible to complete any specific U of L course requirements on an exchange. All courses taken on exchange will transfer back to the U of L as non-specific electives. The specific name of the exchange course (or even the type of course) will not be recorded on U of L transcripts. The following grid summarizes the exchange course transfer procedure.
Exchange Course Taken Recorded on U of L transcript as:
|Management or Business courses||Mgmt 3XXX/4XXX|
|Humanities courses||Hum 1XXX / 2XXX|
|Social Science courses||Scci 1XXX / 2XXX|
|Fine Arts courses||Fine Arts 1XXX/ 2XXX|
NOTE: Science courses are rarely available to exchange students. We recommend students complete all required science courses at the U of L.
Students are strongly advised to consider exchange semester dates when applying for graduation as this may affect your graduation date.
