Program vs. Faculty Regulations

Regulations governing programs in Natural Sciences are a combination of general Faculty of Science regulations and the additional program specific regulations listed below. It is essential for students to be familiar with both sets of regulations. It is helpful to read Section 3 (Faculty Regulations) first.

Students should consult Academic Requirements in their Student Centre periodically to ensure that requirements are being met.
