Supplementary Qualifying Courses

(formerly known as the Substitute Course List)

Qualifying students have minimum unit requirements that they must meet in order to be able to qualify for program placement. Students must finish all first year core courses. If you have previously completed or have post-secondary transfer credit for any first year courses, the following list of courses will supplement your registration. Registration details for qualifying students are available on our Qualifying Student Registration page.

Before selecting any courses from this list check the Calendar Course Listings carefully for program requirements, prerequisites and corequisites. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the courses they select transfer into the program(s) they are hoping to enter.

Information about each course is also available by expanding the selection. This includes which Engineering programs accept credit for the course.
