Note: The Faculties of Education, Haskayne School of Business, Medicine, Nursing and Social Work do not accept transfer students for the Winter Term. Change of Programs to the Faculty of Kinesiology and the Schulich School of Engineering (BSc, BSc/BA) for the Winter Term will be considered only if the quota permits additional admissions.

Note: Change of Programs to combined degree programs must be submitted by the deadline date of the faculty with the earlier deadline.

Spring Term:

April 1 all faculties

(except those noted below)

Summer Term:

May 1 all faculties

(except those noted below)

Note: Change of Programs to the Faculties of Art (Drama, Music, or Visual Arts only), Education, Haskayne School of Business, Medicine, Nursing, Social Work and the Program of Dance are not accepted for the Spring and Summer Terms. The Faculty of Kinesiology and the Schulich School of Engineering recommend that students enter the Fall Term. Change of Programs to the Faculty of Communication and Culture for Spring Term are not accepted from students who are currently registered in the Winter Term.

Owing to the short period between the end of examinations in the Fall Term and the start of classes in the Winter Term, students wishing to transfer to a different faculty or program between the Fall and Winter Terms will be allowed to register for courses in the new faculty if they are admissible prior to release of Fall Term grades. If, as a result of the Fall Term grades, the transfer is not approved, the student will be returned to his/her original faculty provided he/she has not been required to withdraw. Students re-admitted to their former faculty will be cancelled from Winter Term courses which do not fit their degree program, regardless of the date. New courses can only be selected up to the deadline date specified in the Academic Schedule.
