Applying as a Special Student
Special Engineering Student status is normally granted for one of three reasons:
- To allow students who are currently enrolled in programs at other universities to take courses that they cannot access at their home institutions; or
- To allow international students in recognized joint programs with Ryerson with an opportunity to take courses while studying at Ryerson; or
- To allow university graduates to upgrade their skills or knowledge.
Special Engineering Student status is not an entry point into Ryerson programs.
Student with a “Required to Withdraw” standing (or equivalent) from any university do not qualify for Special Student status in the Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science at Ryerson University.
