€ students may take additional electives or GER courses from outside CBC to increase their number of AUs

* may be eligible for some year 4 PEs in this semester

¶ would also be offered exemption from this course

§ it is possible for students to take 3011 and 3014, but this would be a heavy load of core courses

£ Recommended but not required

Students planning to graduate early are strongly advised to consider carefully whether they can handle the heavier academic load.

Students are advised that the two tables above for early graduation are illustrative and not prescriptive. Other schedules should also be possible, subject to pre-requisite requirements.

There is no requirement to inform the Division or School that you plan to graduate early as this is done through the ordinary registration process. The University will automatically know when you have satisfied all of the requirements.
