Applicants who have completed a baccalaureate degree as defined above but whose academic record is such that they do not meet the Faculty of Graduate Studies’ standards for admission to a master’s program may be considered for a Pre-Entry program. Upon the recommendation of the academic unit concerned, the Dean of Graduate Studies may approve a pre-entry program consisting of a minimum of 6 units of undergraduate course work numbered at the 300 or 400 level to be taken as an undergraduate student prior to entry in the Faculty of Graduate Studies. This course work must be relevant to the proposed field of study, and must be completed within the time frame specified. An average of not less than 6.0 (B+) must be achieved in the course work, and no course may be completed at a level below 4.0 (B-).
Students approved by the Dean of Graduate Studies for this pre-entry option are guaranteed admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies upon successful completion of the recommended courses. None of the courses in the pre-entry program may be considered for transfer credit towards the graduate program.
Applicants with an undergraduate degree whose grade point average is below the Faculty of Graduate Studies’ minimum may complete additional senior undergraduate course work to strengthen their application. If, after completion of additional courses, the applicant is admitted, those courses are not eligible for transfer credit towards the graduate program.
Applicants who lack prerequisite or background courses may complete additional undergraduate course work to strengthen their application. If admitted, upon the recommendation of the student’s supervisory committee, those courses may be eligible for transfer credit towards the graduate program, subject to the limitations stated on this page. Upon the advice of the academic unit, a provisional offer of admission may be given, subject to satisfactory completion of recommended courses.
Upon the recommendation of the academic unit concerned, the Dean of Graduate Studies may approve the inclusion of the missing background or prerequisites as part of the requirements for the master’s or doctoral degree. Alternatively, upon the advice of the academic unit, a provisional offer of admission may be approved subject to satisfactory completion of a pre-entry program.
