Program PathsWhat are they?• Program paths are a general “open access” program category, that allows students to prepare for entry into a particular program, while taking a variety of courses that may be applicable to their goal.• Applicants who are not admissible to the program to which they applied, or who apply when the program is closed, are admitted to program paths.• Program paths provide the opportunity to take courses to prepare for entry to a program, or to apply towards their intended program. Students may register for any course provided they meet the prerequisites.• Although students can apply directly to program paths, most students would benefit by applying for admission to a degree or diploma in their discipline (consider BA or BSc if the goal is less clear) if they can meet the qualifications.
Program PathsFor students who are:• Completing entrance requirements for an intended program• Taking courses that will count towards their intended program• Students are still able to take any and every course for which they have met the pre-requisites.• Students are not “locked in” to a particular program path.• Students on program paths must still apply for admission to their program once they qualify (preferably ASAP)
