Type of Programs & Program Requirements

Arts and Science students must enroll in a program upon completing their fourth full credit towards a degree via their College Registrar’s offices or the Student Web Services (ROSI). No minimum GPA is required for enrolment in any of the French programs. Students must familiarize themselves with the requirements of their intended program and should consult an Academic Counsellor whenever clarifications are needed.

Students must satisfy the subject post requirements as outlined the year in which they registered in the program. Students having registered in these subject posts in previous year should consult the brochure from their year of registration.
