University BSc and BA Regulations

  1. Course Equivalency
    Departments may, with the approval of the dean, recognize a specific course as the equivalent of a required course when a student has obtained satisfactory credit for the course at this or another institution.
  2. Prohibition from Registration
    1. A student deemed by the department offering a particular course to have the knowledge or skills taught in that course may be declared ineligible to register for credit in that course.
    2. A student who has failed the equivalent of 2.0 junior credits in a subject, whether the failure occurred in the same course(s) or different course(s), will be barred from registering for credit in further junior courses in that subject, except by permission of the dean and of the department offering the subject.
  3. Honours Courses
    Several departments in each faculty offer a limited number of courses that are specifically intended for, and restricted to, honours students in the discipline. For these courses, all other students require special permission from the department concerned to register in the honours level courses.
  4. Double Counting
    Students are permitted to double-count courses for more than one program in which the same course is a required course or an elective.
