Prerequisite Courses

For a student that was admitted as a “supplementary” student and is required to take prerequisite courses – these courses are an integral part of the degree requirements and will be calculated toward the degree GPA, unless the department will recommend towards the transition to “full-time” status, that some or all of the prerequisite courses will not be included in the degree’s GPA. For such a student two GPA will be calculated; a GPA for prerequisite courses completed (for follow-up purposes) and a degree GPA. Only the degree GPA will be considered when competing for scholarships, awards, direct transfer to the doctorate and completion of a degree. Exclusion of prerequisite courses’ GPA from the degree’s GPA will not be done at a later stage of studies.
