3. General Degree Upgrade

Students who have received a three-year General degree in the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s University may upgrade to a four-year Queen’s Arts and Science Honours degree, subject to the following regulations.

3. 1 – Admission Requirements
Students must have completed a B.A.(Gen.), B.Sc.(Gen.) or B.Cmp.(Gen.) in the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s University. No application for admission is required for students who wish to complete an Honours degree.

3.2 – Academic Requirements
Students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 1.90 in order to be eligible for an Honours degree. A student shall be deemed ineligible to proceed to an Honours degree if he or she has attempted 132.0 or more units at the time of assessment and has a cumulative GPA of less than 1.90 (see Academic Regulation 13).

Students must complete all course and degree requirements for the four-year Honours degree according to the regulations of the Faculty of Arts and Science as outlined in Academic Regulation 16.

Students who have received a B.A.(Gen.), B.Sc.(Gen.) or B.Cmp.(Gen.) degree at Queen’s may, with the permission of the relevant Department, be admitted to an appropriate Plan (see Academic Regulation 2). They may complete the requirements for an Honours degree in the same or a different Plan to that in which they graduated with the General degree.

All courses from the first degree will count toward the Honours degree.

Students who have or who qualify for a four-year degree should refer to the Second Degree Program section of this chapter.
