Requests for a Change of Program may be made through the online Student Centre at The deadline dates for Change of Programs are as follows:

Fall Term:

February 1: All programs

Winter Term:

September 1: Faculty of Nursing (Transfer and Degree Holder Routes only).

Note: The Haskayne School of Business, Cumming School of Medicine, Schulich School of Engineering, Faculty of Social Work, and Werklund School of Education do not accept transfer students for the Winter Term. Change of Programs to the Faculty of Kinesiology 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 Intersession:

March 1: All faculties

(except those noted below)

Summer Intersession:

May 1: All faculties

(except those noted below)

Note: Change of Programs to the Faculties of Art (Drama, Music, or Visual Arts only), Cumming School Medicine, Haskayne School of Business, Faculty of Nursing, Schulich School of Engineering, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Social Work and the Program of Dance are not accepted for the Summer Term (including Spring Intersession). The Faculty of Kinesiology recommend that students enter the Fall Term. Change of Programs to the Werklund School of Education for the Summer Term will be considered only for those students who are seeking admission to a Degree program with a summer intake.

Students who wish to request a Change of Program for the Summer Term should contact their Faculty.

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 their original faculty provided they have 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.
