Before you begin making your individualized timetable, it is important that you familiarize yourself with your degree program and know what course that you are required to take in your first year as a Science student. Click the following links to see your program curriculum
Upon admission, courses from other post-secondary institutions as well as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) are evaluated for credit toward your program in the Faculty of Science.
Students who have received transfer credit must pay particular attention to any course notes and restrictions listed on their transfer credit report. These notes commonly state “may not also receive credit in course X at the U of A”. This means you are not permitted to take the course that has been listed in the comment.
You may also find that transfer credit has been granted as [subject] 2XX (ie. BIOL 2XX). Occasionally courses are reviewed that are similar to, but not exactly the same as courses offered at the U of A. The material covered in these courses offer sufficient knowledge to qualify for credit, however due to slight differences, direct credit to a U of A course cannot be assigned. In the case of BIOL 2XX, credit is being granted for a 200 level Biology course.
