Faculty of Engineering : Computer Science Programs
A student in another faculty who wishes to transfer into a BSc program in the Faculty of Engineering must have completed 12 units of courses including CSC 110 and MATH 100 or MATH 109. Transfer applicants must also have a minimum C+ average on the most recent 12 units of courses at the time of transfer. A student in another faculty who has completed one or more sessions at the University must also have satisfactory standing as defined by the University at the time of transfer.
Students taking a Major or Honours degree program in Computer Science must take ENGL 135. Please see Academic Writing Requirements (AWR) for Combined programs. See Academic Writing Requirement for more information.
The CSC 110 course challenge exam is intended to allow registered undergraduate students to receive credit on the basis of knowledge or experience acquired outside the University. A student may challenge CSC 110 one time only by taking this special examination. The grade received will be entered into the student’s academic record, further determining the student’s sessional standing. See Credit by Course Challenge for regulations about taking a challenge exam.
In order to take the exam, the student must first apply through Undergraduate Records using the Course Challenge form <www.uvic.ca/registrar/assets/docs/record-forms/course-challenge.pdf>, which will be forwarded to the Department of Computer Science for approval, and the student will be informed of the time of the exam, held once a term, normally within the first week of the term. The Course Challenge fee must be paid before the challenge examination is undertaken. Once the results have been approved by the Chair, a report of the grade awarded will be sent to both the student and to Undergraduate Records, and become part of the student’s academic record.

Students registered in a Co-op Program must normally be enrolled in at least 6.0 units of course work during each academic term. Students who fail to achieve satisfactory completion of a work term will be required to withdraw from the program. Each work term is recorded on the student’s academic record and transcript. Please refer to the general regulations pertaining to Co-operative Education Programs of the University of Victoria governing all co-operative education students.
Students normally must complete the Academic Writing Requirement before undertaking their first work term but in all cases must complete this requirement before their second work term.
