Degrees

University of Toronto Scarborough students may earn an Honours Bachelor of Arts, an Honours Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Business Administration degree after completing the appropriate requirements listed below. In doing so, students are expected to adhere to the rules and regulations outlined in this Calendar. (Students who first registered at U of T Scarborough prior to the 2004 Summer Session may elect to receive a B.A. or a B.Sc. degree after having completed the requirements for a three-year (fifteen-credit) degree.)
  Degrees are conferred at university convocations, held twice annually: the Spring Convocation held in June and the Fall Convocation held in November. Students who have confirmed their intention to graduate will be mailed complete information about the time and arrangements in March for the June Convocation and in October for the Fall Convocation.
  Students in their graduating year who intend to take part in the next Convocation must notify the Registrar's Office of their intention either through ROSI or on a confirmation of graduation form by the deadline listed in the Sessional Dates section of this Calendar.
  To determine if you have met degree and/or program requirements, login to Degree Navigator at www.rosi.utoronto.ca . For more information about Degree Navigator see the Student Web Service section of this Calendar.

B.A. and B.Sc. Degrees

The type of degree students receive is determined by the Program(s) completed. See the list in Programs of Study (Subject POSts) for the type of degree towards which each Program leads. Students must monitor their own progress to degree completion.

Graduation with High Distinction and with Distinction

University of Toronto Scarborough students who have completed at least ten full credits while registered at University of Toronto Scarborough or at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Arts and Science will graduate with high distinction if their cumulative grade point average is 3.50 or better and will graduate with distinction if their cumulative grade point average is between 3.20 and 3.49. Students who have completed fewer than ten University of Toronto Scarborough or Faculty of Arts & Science credits who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.20 or better will be considered on an individual basis.

Three-Year Degree

U of T Scarborough has discontinued the three year degree. Students registered at U of T Scarborough prior to the 2004 Summer Session may still choose to complete a three-year degree. To qualify for a three-year degree, these students must:
  1. Pass at least fifteen full credits.
  2. Complete the requirements of a Major Program or two Minor Programs. Combinations of Programs used to meet this requirement must include at least eight different full credits.
  3. Earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 1.60.
Where students use two minor Programs to satisfy the requirements of a three-year degree, in order to receive a B.Sc., both must be in the sciences.

Upgrading Three-Year Degrees

Students who have graduated with a three-year degree may still choose to complete the requirements of the Honours degree. A second degree will not be conferred but completion of the Honours degree requirements will be noted on the student's transcript. Students who upgrade a three-year degree to an Honours degree may exchange the diploma for an Honours diploma of the same kind, e.g. a three-year B.Sc. may only be replaced by an Honours B.Sc. diploma. Students who have received a three-year degree and are in the final year of the Honours degree should notify the Registrar's Office through ROSI or by means of a confirmation of graduation form by the deadline listed in the Sessional Dates section of this Calendar.

Students who first registered at U of T Scarborough before the 1989 Summer Session

Students who first registered at the University of Toronto Scarborough before the 1989 Summer Session may, if they wish, complete the degree requirements outlined in the 1988-89 Calendar. Students who first registered before the 1980 Summer Session may, if they wish, complete the degree requirements outlined in the 1979-80 Calendar. For these students, the type of degree is determined by the number of science credits completed.

Transfer Students

Students transferring to the University of Toronto Scarborough are required to complete at least half of their credits and half of their Program requirements as University of Toronto Scarborough students. Students transferring from other divisions of the University of Toronto are exempt from this requirement.

"Second Degree" Requirements

Students beginning a second degree are normally exempted from first year of the degree requirements by being granted five (5.0) credits, regardless of the number of previous degrees.
Students who hold a B.A., B.B.A. or B.Sc. from the University of Toronto will be considered for admission to a second degree Program only of a different type (e.g. students with a B.A. degree may only complete a B.B.A. or B.Sc. degree). Application for admission to a second degree Program is made through the Assistant Registrar-Admissions.

Certificate Program in Business

Students in this program must complete the following in order to qualify for the Certificate in Business:
  1. Pass 6.0 full credits in Management and Economics for Management Studies, including ECMA01H & ECMA05H and [MGTA03H & MGTA04H] or MGTA02Y
  2. Earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00.

Students in their graduating session who intend to take part in the next Convocation must notify the Registrar's Office of their intention either through ROSI or on a confirmation of graduation form by the deadline listed in the Sessional Dates section of this Calendar.
