Incoming Exchange Student Prerequisite Verification and Course Request Form

Welcome to the Faculty of Science!

Whether you’re a science major at your home institution or looking to take some science options during your exchange, we’re glad to have you join our community. For most courses, pre-requisite requirements need to be confirmed before registration approval is granted. Course descriptions and pre-requisite requirement information is available in the University Calendar.

Fill out the form to request enrolment consent for courses offered by the Faculty of Science. If you are requesting courses in multiple departments, you can use this form for all of your science course requests or submit subsequent forms as needed. If you are requesting courses offered by other faculties, please consult with your study abroad advisors and review the course request procedures for other faculties

If you are requesting an independent research project course you must first obtain a supervisor. Once you have obtained a supervisor, you must fill out a research project request form. Forms are due prior to the start of the term (check the page for deadlines) and late forms cannot be accepted. You can contact faculty members directly to discuss your interest in a research course, but please note that capacity to supervise students is limited and not guaranteed. To start, we suggest that you review the research interests and activities sections of department webpages to find areas of interest to you. 

Before you submit the form to the department, make sure ALL other supporting documents are uploaded. This includes course syllabi (syllabuses) or other materials. Not including all necessary documents makes it difficult for the department to evaluate your course requests and may cause unnecessary confusion and delays.

Please also note that you cannot save the form mid-way through filling it out and come back to it later, so we advise that you have all your documentation ready for your submission.
