This form must be submitted to OGS prior to receiving an offer and no later than the end of the first week of the first semester, after this

are as follows:
Courses must be suitable and applicable to the University
of Guelph graduate program, as determined by the
department/school Graduate Studies Committee.
The minimum grade acceptable for advanced standing credit is 70% (B).
3. Courses may not have been used as requirements for any other degree or diploma which has been granted.
Courses used as part of the basic admissions requirement for the University of Guelph graduate program are not eligible.
For example, if courses were considered necessary for the student to be eligible for admission to the graduate
program, or
were taken as part of required upgrading, advanced credit will not be graded.
Please refer to the Graduate Calendar for full listing of criteria, regulations and requirements.

Student Signature:
The department/school Graduate Studies Committee hereby recommends that the student be granted credit for the course listed
above. We acknowledge that a maximum of two courses can be considered for advanced standing credit and that advanced standing,
transfer and external credits in any program cannot reduce the minimum number of prescribed course credits taken as a graduate
student at Guelph to less than half the normal requirement (exclusive of major paper/research project/thesis). For a DVSc program,
advanced standing, transfer and external credits cannot reduce the minimum number of prescribed course credits to fewer than 2.0.
