Returning Student Program Requirements

Program Requirements

Program-specific requirements can be found in MyDegree or in the official academic calendar. The university grading system can be found in the official academic calendar. If there is any discrepancy between the requirements listed in MyDegree and the requirements in the academic calendar, the calendar is the official version.

Program Changes

All registered students in years 1 through 3 will be automatically confirmed in their current academic program on LORIS for registration in the next academic year.

If you wish to make a change to your program you may do so in LORIS from March 1 until April 27.

Highly competitive programs have special considerations and require submission of a Program Transfer Form. Highly competitive programs include:

  • Business Technology Management
  • Criminology and Policing - Part-Time, Fully Online 
  • Digital Media and Journalism
  • Economics
  • Game Design and Development
  • Kinesiology
  • Bachelor of Social Work
  • Sussex (with Criminology, Human Rights and Human Diversity, or Law and Society)
  • User Experience Design 

Note: BBA and BBA double degrees transfer requests are submitted through LORIS between mid-May and mid-June.

Note: Late requests for program changes are continuously being approved.

Academic Standing

In mid-June, you can log in to LORIS to check your official grades and the decision regarding your program declaration under the "Record of Course Work" area (select the winter term for the year). For additional information regarding academic standing please visit the academic calendar.

To check your final grades prior to them going official (e.g. mid-January for fall term, mid-June for winter term), please review your "Unofficial Record of Coursework" in LORIS

If you did not meet the requirements of the program you confirmed for fall/winter, you will be placed in a program that you are currently eligible. For example, if you have selected "Honours Psychology" but did not meet the honours major GPA requirements you will be automatically placed in "Honours Arts." If you wish to revise this choice and are eligible for another program, submit the Program Selection Form.

Note: Not all programs can be changed through the Program Selection Form.
