Students may wish to take courses that are not necessary to or an integral part of their graduate program. Courses extra to the degree must be designated and approved by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (FGSR) at the time of registration in the courses. The FGSR does not include these courses when calculating the student’s GPA for continuation in the graduate program or convocation.
To register, students complete a Course Extra to Degree form. The department must approve the form and submit it to the FGSR.
