After-Degree Applicants

What is an After-Degree?

Students who have already completed an undergraduate degree may apply for an additional undergraduate degree with the Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences. These applicants are referred to as ‘After-Degree’ Applicants.

After-Degree Applicants are evaluated for admission like a post-secondary transfer applicant. They must meet all admission requirements for their degree of choice, including high school requirements.
