Your course registration will depend on the program you have been admitted to and the transfer credit you receive.
STEP 2: LOCATE YOUR ADMISSION PACKAGE
Once you have reviewed these documents you will need to find your program curriculum.
Select your program:
Students transferring to the Bachelor of Science (BSc) General degree
Students transferring to a Bachelor of Science (BSc) Specialization degree
Students transferring to an Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honors degree
1. I received credit BIOL 2XX rather than BIOL 201. What does the “XX” mean?
Occasionally we see university-level courses that are similar to, but not exactly the same as courses we offer. We feel that the course material covered in these courses offer sufficient knowledge to qualify for credit, but since it is not exact we cannot assign direct credit to one of our university courses. In the case of BIOL 2XX, credit is being granted for a 200 level Biology course.
Note: this course will still count towards university pre-requisites.
2. According to the Alberta Transfer Guide my course is transferable to the University of Alberta, but I did not receive credit for it towards my Science degree. Why?
We award transfer credit for university level courses that fit within your new science program and there could be various reasons for you not receiving credit in a particular course. If you have received the maximum number of transfer credit allowed, or have exceeded the junior level course limit, or repeated a course that was already successfully completed, you will not receive transfer credit. If you do not fall within these categories, please contact the undergraduate office to inquire about your course.
3. Who is my Departmental Advisor?
Specialization and Honors students are assigned Advisors in the Science departments. Access the Advisor list to find your specific Advisor.
