Letter of Permission Applications

A Letter of Permission (LOP) student  is someone who is registered in a degree program outside of the Toronto School of Theology who has been permitted to take courses at a TST college. LOP students are also known as external students or visiting students. Applicants must apply directly to the college that offers the course they hope to take.
