VIII--Regulations and Procedures

Transfer of Program

Students wishing to transfer from one degree program to another (e.g. from B.Sc. to B.Sc. (Engineering) or from B.A. to B.Comm.) are required to submit an application form for University of Guelph students to the Admissions Office. Forms are available from the Admissions Section, third floor of the University Centre. To clarify possible conditions or requirements for transfer, students are encouraged to consult with the admission counsellor for the program to which they wish to transfer before submitting their application. In cases where the student's performance has been inconsistent, the applicant must also submit a comprehensive support letter outlining the reasons for transfer as well as any factors contributing to the previous academic performance.

  1. Procedures for Currently Registered Students

    Course selection should be completed for the new program. The admission decision will be made after grades from the current semester are available and after the deadline date for course selection. The drop and add procedure must be used if the application is submitted after the course selection deadline date and if course selection has been completed for the current program.

    Fee changes necessitated by the change of program will be calculated automatically by the Student Finance and Awards Office.

    The admission decision will be sent to the student's Campus Post Office Box during the first week of the following semester.

    Students who have received an offer of admission which they wish to decline must contact the Academic Records Section within the first 10 class days. Students who fail to decline the offer will remain registered in the new program. All students must verify their course selection with their departmental advisor to ensure compatibility with their program of study.

  2. Procedures for Students who are Not Currently Registered

    An admission decision will be reached as soon as possible after receipt of the application and any supporting documentation.

    Admission decisions will be mailed to the mailing address, if in effect, or to the permanent address. Information on mail registration and instructions concerning course selection will be sent under separate cover by the Academic Records Section.

Note: Students who wish to transfer from one specialization to another in the same program (e.g. from Child Studies to Applied Human Nutrition or from Drama to Sociology) are not required to apply. Such students should contact the departmental advisor for the specialization in which they wish to register.
