Enrolment of undergraduate students in 600-level courses
An undergraduate student will be permitted to take 600-level courses subject to the following conditions:
- The student has a minimum CGPA of 3.3.
- The student is in U3 or higher.
- The professor of the course and the program adviser or the director of the undergraduate program provide written approval supporting the request.
- A maximum of six credits of 600-level courses are allowed towards the degree.
- The actual course number appears on the transcript.
- The course evaluation methods and grading standards are the same for all students, whether graduate or undergraduate.
- The regulations and practices of the Faculty Science are also applied to such a course.
Procedures to be followed by the student:
- Complete the standard form, preferably well in advance of the start of classes. (You can pick up a form at the Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA) Office, Dawson Hall, Information Counter, Room 405).
- Get approval on the form or on a separate note from the professor of the course and from the adviser or the director of the undergraduate program.
- Submit the form with the approval to the Assistant to the Director of Advising Services of the Faculty of Science (Dawson Hall, Room 405) before the end of the course Drop/Add period. DO NOT LEAVE REQUESTS TO THE LAST DAY.
- If the conditions and procedures are met, the request will be approved and the Assistant to the Associate Dean of Science will issue a permit-override. It is the student's responsibility to register for the course on MINERVA before the end of the course Drop/Add period.
It is the responsibility of the student to start the procedures well in advance of the term and to undertake the various steps along the way to final approval so that they can be completed before the end of the Drop/Add period. Late requests are likely to be refused, but if they are approved, the student will be subject to the Late Add Fee.
Exceptional cases (CGPA below 3.3, late requests, Visiting Students):
Students in this category must also submit a letter detailing the reasons why approval should be granted even though the conditions have not been met. Such requests may be refused. The procedures for such requests are the same as those stated above. However, the form must be submitted by the student for approval to Charlotte Legare in the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office (James Administration Bldg., Room 400) before it is submitted to the Assistant to the Director of Advising Services in Faculty of Science.
