Time and Credit Limit for Completion of Degree for the Faculty of Arts
If you need 96 or fewer credits to complete your degree requirements, you are expected to complete your degree in no more than eight terms after your initial registration for the degree. If you are a student in the Freshman program, you become subject to these regulations one year after your initial registration. Please speak with an Adviser in Arts OASIS to plan your degree.
If you want to exceed the minimum credit requirement for your degree, please speak with an Adviser in Arts OASIS to plan your degree.
Students seeking to exceed the time/credit limit typically do so for valid academic reasons, such as a change of program (subject to departmental approval) and part-time status. For "non-Advanced Standing" students, elective credits over the credit limit will normally be flagged for no credit and the grades will not count in the CGPA.
Students entering the University with Advanced Standing status should refer to Advanced Standing Credits for more information.
