Appeals

Normally, only those students admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program may progress to Year 4 BMSc.
A student with extenuating circumstances in Year 2 (e.g. documented medical or compassionate circumstances of a serious nature) may submit an appeal that will be considered by the Basic Medical Sciences Undergraduate Education (BMSUE) Program Committee if entry into Year 3 BMSc is denied. The deadline to submit an appeal is June 30th, immediately following completion of Year 2. See link below for full details.

A student granted an appeal will register in Year 3 of a BSc program and be permitted to submit an Intent to Register for Year 4 of the BMSc (Honors) Program.   At the end of Year 3, admission to Year 4 BMSc will be granted as long provided the conditions laid out during the granting of the appeal are satisfied.

A student denied an appeal will not be permitted to register in a module(s) leading to a BMSc degree at any point in the future.  A student in this situation will be  encouraged to consider completing a BSc degree with either (i) Double Majors, choosing one basic medical science Major and a Major from another faculty (e.g. Major in Biology or Major in Psychology) in either an Honors or 4-year (non-honors) degree, or (ii) an Honors Specialization or Specialization module offered by the Faculty of Science.
