Printable Version Printable Version

Any honours student in good standing before their 3A term may enrol in the plan of their choice, subject to the limitations below. Students in 3A or later may be admitted to specific honours plans at the discretion of the relevant department or other academic unit, as appropriate.

  1. The following plans are limited enrolment plans:
    • Actuarial Science (all plans)
    • Business Administration and Computer Science Double Degree
    • Business Administration and Mathematics Double Degree
    • Computer Science
    • Data Science (all plans)
    • Financial Analysis and Risk Management
    • Health Informatics Option
    • Information Technology Management
    • Mathematics/Business Administration
    • Mathematics/Chartered Professional Accountancy (all plans)
    • Mathematics/Teaching
    • Pure Mathematics/Teaching
    • Software Engineering
    • Statistics for Health

  2. Students are not admitted to specific honours plans before their 2A term, except for the following plans:
    • Applied Mathematics/Engineering Electives
    • Business Administration and Mathematics Double Degree
    • Computer Science (all major plans)
    • Financial Analysis and Risk Management
    • Information Technology Management
    • Mathematics/Business Administration
    • Mathematics/Chartered Professional Accountancy (all plans)

  3. Students are normally admitted to Software Engineering in Year One.

  4. Admission to Actuarial Science requires a special major average of at least 70% and no more than one excluded course. A student with no special major average requires a cumulative average of at least 70% on at least ten non-excluded courses, provided they have no failed courses. In addition, a minimum grade of 60% in MTHEL 131 is an admission requirement for the following plans:
    • Honours Actuarial Science
    • Honours Actuarial Science/Finance Option
    • Honours Actuarial Science/Predictive Analytics Option
    • Joint Actuarial Science
    • Actuarial Science Minor

    For Business Administration and Mathematics Double Degree students only, a minimum grade of C- in BUS 121W can be substituted for the MTHEL 131 requirement.

  5. Both the Bachelor of Mathematics (Data Science) and Bachelor of Computer Science (Data Science) plans are limited enrolment plans, and students are not normally admitted to either plan before their 2A term. Admission to either plan requires a math major average of at least 65% (calculated over all math and computer science courses) and a CS major average of at least 70%. In addition, students must have completed at least one term in the Faculty of Mathematics with a typical course load for a Computer Science major, have credit for either CS 136 or CS 146, and must otherwise meet all criteria for admission to a Computer Science major plan.
