PLAN REQUESTS (For students completing their first year)

When and where do I request my plan?

The Student Program/Plan Selection period for students ends on Friday, May 25 at midnight.

What grade do I need to get into a French major or medial plan?

Students with a C or above grade in FREN 150 (or FREN 110) or a B or above grade in FREN 100 (or FREN 101 and FREN 102) and a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 can automatically be put into a major or medial plan provided the request is submitted through SOLUS in the designated period. Students who received a grade of C- in FREN 150 (or 110) or a B- in FREN 100 (or FREN 101 and FREN 102) or whose GPA is below 2.5 will be put on a pending list.

What grade do I need to be a French Minor?

Students with a C or above grade in FREN 150 (or FREN 110) or C- or above grade in FREN 100 (or FREN 101 and FREN102) and a cumulative GPA of 2.3 will automatically be put into their requested French minor plan provided the request is submitted through SOLUS in the designated period. Students who received grades in the D range (C- to D+) will be put on the pending list. Students below D- will not be accepted into a minor plan.

Please note, that these academic thresholds are for students applying to plans from first-year going into second year.  They are not applicable to upper-year students wishing to change their plan.
