33.1 Admission and Transfer
The Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences functions under enrolment management. As such, the Faculty's total student enrolment is limited. All applications with the minimum Admission Grade Point Average (AGPA) are evaluated and ranked as part of an applicant pool. Spaces in programs are allocated to the top applications in the applicant pool downward until the spaces in the programs are filled. Therefore, in any given year, the AGPA cutoff to a degree program may be higher than the minimum AGPA required for consideration.
Applicants should indicate their choice of a degree program and major on their application. Those who have not selected a major by the end of their first year in the program shall be required to declare one before registering for the next academic year.
