Changing Your Program

Changing your program can mean any of the following:

  • Changing to a different plan/major
  • Changing from a B.A. to an Honours program, or vice versa
  • Changing from a Single Honours program to a Combined Honours program, or vice versa

If you wish to change your program in Humanities, first make sure you qualify by checking the admission requirements of the program in question.

It is always recommended that students first discuss a program change with an advisor to ensure admission requirements are met and review the program requirements.

If you wish to switch to a program in a different faculty, you need to be in contact with that faculty office to discuss requirements and the process for changing.
