The School's admission policy is governed by the availability of graduate student space. Possession of the minimum admission requirements does not, in itself, guarantee acceptance. Advanced standing may be granted for required courses only if previous work is judged to be equivalent to courses required in the program. Advanced standing and transfer of credit must be determined on an individual basis in consultation with the supervisor of graduate studies and must be approved at the time of admission by the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. In general, a grade of B- or better is required in equivalent courses to obtain advanced standing.
