Supplemental Information for Your Schedule of Studies

In order to find out what courses are required for graduation, you must refer to the Undergraduate Calendar to read your Schedule of Studies and degree requirements. You must follow the Schedule of Studies (i.e. the list of courses required for your major as well as any other major requirements) outlined in your Calendar Year. You can find your Calendar Year on your Program/Academic Evaluation on WebAdvisor; it is listed as “Calendar” (for example, if your Calendar is “2017” your Calendar Year is 2017-2018). For the majority of majors, each Calendar Year requires a unique set of courses; this makes it very important for you to know what Calendar Year you need to follow.

It is recommended that you use your Schedule of Studies and your Program/Academic Evaluation on WebAdvisor in addition to the information below to assess what courses you still have left to complete for your degree program. If you have any questions about your degree requirements, please ask your Program Counsellor for assistance.

Many changes have been made to course offerings over the last few years. How these changes affect your Schedule of Studies for your Calendar Year is recorded according to Calendar Year in the right side menu.

Check back often for updates.
