Faculty of Science - Honours

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS FROM UNIVERSITY 1:

  • Admission to the Faculty of Science from University 1 is referred to as a 'transit', and therefore does not require an application.
  • You must transit either directly to a Faculty of Science B.Sc. Four Year Major program (provided that you have met the requirements), or to the Faculty of Science B.Sc. General degree once you have completed any 24–30 credit hours of course work.
  • After you 'transit' to Science, you will need to apply to the B.Sc. Honours degree program through the Faculty of Science Dean's office when eligible to do so. To be eligible for a B.Sc. Honours degree, you must satisfy the specific course requirements on the previous program planning pages.
Minimum Credit Hours: 24 credit hours, including required courses to declare honours (noted on each program planning page).
Minimum Course Load:

University 1 may be completed on a full-time or part-time basis.
Admission requirements may be completed in the Summer Session.

W Requirement: Not required to transit.
M Requirement: Not required to transit. A specific M course may be required to declare an Honours program.
See your intended program planning page for details about specific Year 1 or Year 2 math requirements.
Minimum GPA:

3.00 GPA (3.50 for Psychology), plus minimum grades in required courses, as outlined in the Academic Calendar.

Additional Requirements: None.
Selection Criteria:

Grades only. After you 'transit' to Science, you will need to apply to the B.Sc. Honours degree program through the Faculty of Science Dean's Office when eligible to do so.

If you are not eligible for entry to an Honours program, you can always complete the specific requirements following your transit to the Faculty of Science, and apply to the program in Year 2 or 3. You may be able to enter the Honours program through a 2nd year entry route. See a Science Academic Advisor for details.
