Can I graduate with a general degree and then complete the remaining requirements for the honours degree?
It is possible to graduate with a general degree and then complete the remaining honours degree requirements for programs that do offer a general degree (i.e. Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Computing, Bachelor of Science). However, students who graduate with a general degree and then upgrade it to the honours program obtain an Honours Equivalent recognition and not an honours degree.
For more information about Honours Equivalent recognition please refer to the section entitled Graduation in Section VIII of the current Undergraduate Calendar or the Post-Degree Applicants sub-section of the Upgrading from General to Honours Degree (Honour's Equivalency) page on the Admission Services website at https://admission.uoguelph.ca/postdegree
