Second Degree Students
Students who have a first degree and a GPA of at least 2.0 on all courses completed may pursue a shortened route to various Bachelor of Science degrees.

The regulations are outlined as:

Requirements for second degree may be met through work completed in first degree:

  • Extra courses from first degree may be applied to the second degree if they are transferrable into the Faculty of Science
  • Repeated courses from first degree may not be counted for credit towards the second degree if taken in the last 10 years

Additional requirements for degree programs:

  • General degree
    • 30 new credit hours from the U of M must be successfully completed to meet the degree requirements
    • DGPA (degree grade point average) of 2.00 must be maintained
  • Major degree
    • 60 new credit hours from the U of M must be successfully completed to meet the degree requirements
    • DGPA of 2.00 must be maintained (some degrees may require higher)
  • Honours degree
    • 60 new credit hours from the U of M must be successfully completed to meet the degree requirements
    • DGPA of 3.00 must be maintained (some degrees may require higher).

Second degree students should speak with an Academic Advisor for help with planning your program and to find out what courses you need to complete your second degree.  This is done on a student-by-student basis depending on your program of choice and what courses you have previously taken. Once we know what program you are intending to study, we can look at your first degree to see what, if any, requirements can be taken off your second degree.

Students should be prepared when meeting with an advisor to provide comprehensive course descriptions; including course outlines, textbook listings, and copies of examinations; for any prior post-secondary studies completed outside of Manitoba.

Second degree requirements will not be reviewed until you speak with an advisor so to ensure you are taking appropriate courses please contact an advisor prior to registration.
