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.

Enrolment Limitations

A graduation requirement for students in the Natural Sciences program is the completion of two concentrations; see "Application to Concentrations". Entry into a given concentration may be subject to enrolment limitations. Students should refer to Subsection 3.3 on Enrolment Limitations under Section 3 (Faculty Regulations), and the sections on enrolment limitations under the regulations of the Department offering the courses in which the student is interested. Students who apply for a concentration in an area with enrolment limitations will be subject to the same selection criteria as students intending to major in that area.

Students Intending to Transfer to Other Science Programs

Students who enter the Natural Sciences program with the intention of transferring to another program offered by the Faculty of Science may follow the requirements and sequence of their intended program for the first two years. However, students who are unsuccessful gaining admission to their intended major by their third year are advised to meet with a Program Advisor in the Undergraduate Science Centre (USC) to discuss the requirements to complete a Natural Sciences degree. Students should be aware they will be blocked from taking more than 36 units (6.0 full course equivalents) in a major field to which they have not been admitted.
