Managing Your Workload

Core Courses, Electives and Options

Taking courses as scheduled within the program of study promotes content integration and optimal learning outcomes. Therefore, most courses must be taken in sequence and are prerequisites for progression through the terms.

Some of the core courses, elective and options may be taken in advance or in spring or summer terms. However, the number of courses taken outside the program schedule may affect full time status, which is required for academic recognition (e.g., Dean’s List, First Class Standing), most scholarships and awards, and student loans.

Prerequisites and Grading Considerations

It is your responsibility to ensure that you meet the course prerequisite and co-requisite requirements for registration in these courses: you can locate this information in the Academic Calendar or through the website course listing. Remember that each requires a minimum grade of C- in order to be usable for course credit in this program.

Maintaining Good Academic Standing

In accordance with MacEwan University`s Academic Standing policy (C207), students require a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 to be considered in Good Standing.

Time to Complete Program
