Visiting Student

A "Visiting Student" is one who is permitted to take a course or courses at Ambrose to transfer to a degree program at another recognized institution. Visiting students must complete the Registration Form for Individual Courses as well as present a letter of permission from their host institution in order to register for Ambrose courses.

Open Studies (Unclassified) Student

An "Open Studies Student" is one who is permitted to take regular university credit courses, but who is not admitted to a program leading to a degree, certificate or diploma. Open Studies students must complete the Registration Form for Individual Courses. Open Studies students may be required to submit unofficial transcripts from all high school and/or post-secondary institutions attended. An Open Studies student is permitted to take a maximum of 15 credit hours at the undergraduate level and 9 credit hours at the graduate level before he or she is required to complete the formal admissions process.
