Program Description

Program Description

The expected length of the program is 12 months, spread over three full semesters. There is also the option of part-time studies, which would result in a longer time frame for completion of the credential. The maximum allowable time for students to complete the program is three years.

Evaluation of the courses is determined by the instructor and may include a combination of assignments, tests, projects, theory, exams and/or practical exams. A minimum overall GPA of 2.0 (C average) is required, with a minimum passing grade (D or better) in each course counting towards the University Transfer Science Certificate.


Upon successful completion of this program, the student will receive a Certificate in University Transfer Science.

Courses
Specific Requirements for the Science Certificate
      A. 3 credits in first-year English; and
      B. 6 credits of Calculus; and
      C. 15 credits in Science; and
      D. 6 additional credits of courses in Arts or Science

Students do not have to declare their intention of completing the University Transfer Science Certificate credential before beginning to take courses. Courses are open to any student who meets the general and specific requirements for the course.


Students will need to meet the admission requirements to the program before courses can be used to complete the University Transfer Science Certificate.
No course will be used to meet more than one of the specific requirements (for example, MATH 1120 as both a Science requirement and as an additional Arts and Science requirement).


Assured Admission Pathways to SFU

Assured Admission pathways to SFU are available to students in the VCC University Transfer Science Certificate (UTSC). Nine pathways exist, with each pathway allowing students to transfer into the 2nd year of a specific SFU Faculty of Science (FSci) program. The pathways are:

Please click on the appropriate link to see further details of the requirements for each pathway.

Competitive Admission Pathway

VCC UTSC students who do not meet the Assured Admission pathway criteria may be eligible to enter FSci programs based on the existing college transfer criteria for SFU admission (24 credits of transferable coursework and meeting the competitive admission GPA requirement for the Faculty of Science set for the specific term of admission), plus program-specific requirements (http://www.sfu.ca/students/admission requirements/canadian-transfer/collegeuniversity.htm).


Students who do not meet the admissions requirements for entry into the program, or prerequisites for specific courses, have alternate options for admissions. VCC offers bridging programs for students requiring upgrading. Students can also complete an admissions review.

Contact advising at 604.443.8453 for further information.

Once you have completed all of the required courses to be eligible for this certificate you can complete the Application for Credential and submit to records@vcc.ca.
