The Western Deans’ Agreement covers exchange graduate students from member universities in British Columbia (Simon Fraser University, University of British Columbia, University of Northern British Columbia, University of Victoria), Alberta (Athabasca University, University of Alberta, University of Calgary, University of Lethbridge), Saskatchewan (University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan) and Manitoba (University of Manitoba) provided that:
||the period for which the fees are remitted does not exceed two academic terms of four months each;|
Western Deans’ Agreement students pay tuition (and general) fees at their home university, and they pay applicable student activity fees (general fees) at the host institution where they are taking courses.
Under the Western Deans’ Agreement, students may take both undergraduate and graduate courses. Students may only take courses which are not available at their home university, and which are an integral part of their graduate degree program. The approval of the appropriate Chairs of the Masters and Ph.D. Program Committees and of the designated representative of the host university must be obtained prior to commencement of the courses.
Students must arrange for official transcripts from the host institution to be sent to the home institution when the courses have been completed. Each home institution has regulations regarding the maximum number of transfer credits permitted. Students should ensure that their requests are within these limits.
