Minors, Majors or Honours programs should consult the overall degree requirements outlined in this section plus the more specific Minor, Major and Honours requirements listed per program in the Programs/Courses of Instruction section which follows.

Each course is identified by a four-digit number, and carries a certain credit value.
The first digit indicates the year in which the course is normally taken.
The second digit sometimes indicates a stream or category of courses within one department.
The third digit specifies a particular course within the department.
The fourth digit indicates the credit value of the course. A 6 credit course extends through Fall and Winter terms and has a fourth digit of zero; a 3 credit course usually lasts one term only and has a fourth digit of one. A few 3 credit courses extend through the Fall and Winter terms and have a fourth digit of three. One credit Music Ensemble courses have a fourth digit of nine and extends throughout both Fall and Winter terms.
Note: Both Fall and Winter terms must be completed to obtain credit for full year courses.
Requirements for degree programs are stated in terms of such course numbers and their accumulated credit values. Typically, a degree requires a minimum 120 credits, earned by passing some combination of 6 credit (two term) and 3 credit (one term) courses. A typical Major requires 60 credits; a typical Minor requires 24 credits.
Note: A grade of D (D+, D, D-) in any course will be considered a conditional (non-continuing) pass. In order for a course to be used to fulfill prerequisite requirements, a grade of C- or better must be obtained. Otherwise, written permission of the appropriate Department or Program Co-ordinator must be obtained.
In any one year, it is only the University Timetable which specifies which courses are actually being taught that year, and in which terms. The listing of a course in the calendar is not a guarantee that the course is offered every year.
