Doctoral Students

If your doctoral program includes a prescribed amount of course work, you may be eligible for course exemptions on the basis of previous courses taken.

Master's Students

You may be exempted from specific course requirements if your graduate program is satisfied that you have acquired the knowledge from previous courses or experience.

Important: For master's students, exemptions do not reduce the total credits required to earn your degree. You and your program must substitute another appropriate course or courses with the same credit value.

The exemption from the specific requirement is entered into your record and shows on the Student Services Centre.
