Graduation Requirements

In addition to the program and academic performance evaluation requirements listed below, students must satisfy the University regulations common to all undergraduate students (see the Academic Regulations section of this Calendar).

Students should consult with the School of Mathematics and Statistics when planning their program and selecting courses.

Academic Performance Evaluation for Bachelor of Mathematics

The standard procedures for Academic Performance Evaluation are followed, with the following additions.

  1. Good Standing at the first Academic Performance Evaluation (0.0 - 5.0 Included Credits) requires that the Major CGPA be at least 5.00 for Honours programs and at least 4.00 for General programs.
  2. Good Standing at any Academic Performance Evaluation requires that the CGPA over the courses MATH 1007, MATH 1107, MATH 2007, MATH 2107 be at least 7.00 for Honours programs and at least 5.00 for General programs.

Program Requirements for Combined B.Math./M.Sc.

This "fast-track" program combines the requirements for Bachelor of Mathematics in Mathematics or Statistics, and Master of Science in Mathematics, into a sequence that will enable exceptional students to complete in four years of study.

Entry to this program directly from an Ontario High School requires both of the following:

    1. an average of 90 per cent or better on Grade 12 Mathematics: Advanced Functions and Introductory Calculus (or an OAC in Calculus) and Grade 12 Mathematics: Geometry and Discrete Mathematics (or an OAC in Algebra and Geometry);
    2. an average of 85 per cent or better over six credits in Grade 12 courses of University or University/College type (or over six OACs).

Admission, continuation and graduation from the undergraduate portion of the program requires a Major CGPA of 11.0 or better and Overall CGPA of 10.00 or better.

Before entry into the fourth year of this program, students must: obtain a recommendation from the School of Mathematics and Statistics to continue, apply to graduate with a B.Math. General degree, by the end of January of their third year, and submit an application for graduate studies to the School by mid-February.
