Degree students may begin their studies in the B.A. or in the B.Sc. degree as Undeclared Students. This means that they have not yet chosen a program within the degree. Undeclared students normally must apply to enter a program before beginning their second year of study. The Student Academic Success Centre offers support to Undeclared students in making this decision.

Academic Standing for Undeclared Students

For purposes of Academic Performance Evaluation, Undeclared students are assessed using only the Overall CGPA.
