Programs of Study

52.3 General Regulations Governing Course Selections


Junior-level courses (numbered 100-199) should be taken as early as possible. A first-year student is normally not permitted to take senior-level courses (numbered 200 and higher).


All programs must include at least *72 at a senior level.


A limited number of specialized professional courses may be substituted for arts and science courses in a BA or BSc program. The maximum allowed is *18.


The maximum number of specialized professional courses allowed in the BMgt program is *36.


A maximum of *12 of Physical Education Activity (AUPAC) is allowed.


Each major or minor must consist of a distinct set of courses. No course may be counted toward more than one such area of study. This restriction does not apply to courses listed in the Calendar as “supporting courses.” If a course is specifically required by two or more of a student’s declared areas of study, the course may be counted toward only one area and a substitute course in each of the other areas must be selected with the approval of the student’s Department Chair.


If a course is repeated, both grades are shown on the student’s transcript but only the more recent one is used, as, for example, in calculating the graduation grade point average (GGPA). However,


a student may not repeat a course for which credit has been earned;


a student may not repeat a failed course more than once.
