Students Transferring from Erindale and Scarborough Colleges

Students transferring from Erindale and Scarborough Colleges must follow the degree requirements in the St. George Campus Calendar. For example: the St. George Campus Distribution Requirements must be completed.

Admission with Transfer Credit

Candidates with acceptable standing at other universities, or at other Faculties or Schools of this University including Scarborough College, may be considered for admission with transfer credit provided that the content of the studies for which credit is sought is equivalent to that of courses offered by the Faculty. The Faculty grants a maximum of five transfer credits to students who have completed the requirements for a degree or diploma. Otherwise a maximum of ten transfer credits will be granted.

Regardless of the number of transfer credits granted, at least two of the three 300+series courses required for a B.A. or B.Sc., and five of the six 300+series courses required for an Honours degree must be completed with a passing mark in this Faculty.

Newly admitted students have one year from the date of their transfer credit assessment, or from the date of their first registration in the Faculty, whichever is later, to request a reassessment or adjustment. The same time limit applies to all departmental interviews.

Admission Restricted to "Part-Time"

Students restricted to a reduced course load on admission may not take more than 3.5 courses in the Winter Session and a maximum of 2.0 courses in the Summer Session. If these students wish to transfer to full-time studies, they may apply through their College Registrar after the session in which they pass at least 4 courses in the Faculty with a cumulative Grade Point Average of 2.50. (Transfer credits are not counted.)

Admission "On Probation"

Candidates who have attended other universities, or other Faculties or Schools of this University including Scarborough College, and who do not meet the Faculty's requirements for admissions may on appeal be admitted "on probation." The academic requirements that must be met by students admitted "on probation" are the same as those required of students who encounter academic difficulties while registered in the Faculty. Refer to Section Six, Rules and Regulations, in this Calendar.

Admission as Special Students

Special Students are registered in the Faculty but are not proceeding towards a degree offered by the Faculty. Most Special Students have completed degree studies and are taking further courses for their own purposes, including admission to graduate studies. Students admitted as degree students cannot become Special students unless they have completed an Honours or Four Year degree, or are returning to the Faculty as Visiting students on a Letter of Permission from another institution. To apply for admission as a Special Student contact Admissions and Awards, 315 Bloor Street, Toronto M5S 1A3 (978-2190).

Admission of External Students to a Second Degree Program

Eligible candidates who hold a post-secondary degree, or who have completed the requirements for a degree or diploma from other Faculties or Schools of this University including Scarborough College or from other universities, are offered admission as Special Students. Upon completion of four credits in the Faculty of Arts and Science, they may apply for degree status.

Admission as Visiting Students

Students with valid Letters of Permission from other accredited North American universities but with no previous Arts and Science registrations may register in the Faculty as Visiting Students at Woodsworth College, taking courses for transfer credit at their own home university. Visiting Student status does not imply acceptance as either a student proceeding towards a degree or a Special Student. Application deadlines: Summer Session Term I: March 15, 1997; Term II: June 27, 1997. Deadlines may be extended. For further information contact Woodsworth College, University of Toronto, Toronto M5S 1A9 (978-4444). Students previously registered in the Faculty of Arts and Science should re-register as Special Students at their original college.

Admission as Non-Matriculants

Candidates at least twenty-one years of age who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada and who do not hold the published admission requirements, and who have been residents in Ontario for at least one year, may apply for admission as non-matriculants. They must present proof of age, and must complete, with high standing, at least one of the Pre-University courses offered by Woodsworth College. All candidates should consult Admissions and Awards concerning their eligibility to qualify as a non- matriculant through the Pre-University Program. Further information on the Pre-University Program is also available by contacting Woodsworth College, University of Toronto, Toronto M5S 1A9 (978-2415).

Admission of Senior Citizens

Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada who are at least sixty-five years of age by the first day of the term, may register in the Faculty at Erindale or Woodsworth Colleges as part-time Special Students. They do not have to meet the academic requirements for admission. Applicants should contact Woodsworth College at 978-2411 (or Erindale College at 905-828-5399) for admission and tuition fee information.

Re-Registration in the Faculty

Students previously registered in this Faculty who wish to return after an absence must submit a Request for Re-registration Form (charge: $24.00) through their College Registrar. Re-registration is necessary for previous students who have not registered in the Faculty in two or more sessions (Winter or Summer) preceding the session for which they intend to re-register.
