In exceptional cases, a student may transfer between closely-related programs (e.g. Botany and Plant Science), or from one degree program to another, with an academic justification from the graduate program advisor or department head of the new program and the approval of the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
See Transfer between closely-related programs for more information.
Transfers between master's programs involving a change of discipline are treated as new admissions.
For information on transfer of credits from one program to another, see Policies & Procedures/Course Registration/Transfer Credit.
