Admission Advice

1. You should select your 1000- and 2000-level courses in consultation with an academic advisor to meet the basic requirements and the specific prerequisite requirements for your intended Major. Academic advisors can also recommend advising sessions and workshops that will help you with the course planning process.

2. After completing 30 credits, but before completing 60 credits (basically in second year), you will be required to meet with the BSc Advisor and declare a Major. The BSc Advisor will help you select 3000- and 4000-level courses needed for your Major.
