There are a limited number of spaces for upper-year transfer students. To be considered for admission, upper-year applicants must have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.3 (B+). However, most successful applicants have a minimum GPA of 3.7 (A-).
As well as submitting academic documentation, all upper-year applicants to the Bachelor of Commerce program must complete a written application.
Calculus at either the senior high school or university level is a prerequisite. There are no other specific university-course prerequisites.
For more information on transferring as an upper year student, please see Undergraduate Admission.
11.3 Admission as a Non-Degree Student
A small number of spaces may be available for students who have already completed an undergraduate degree and who would like to take courses at Smith School of Business for one or two terms during one academic year. Interested students should contact Undergraduate Admission.
Admission to particular courses is based on space availability. Once registered at Queen's University, non-degree students must meet all normal academic course requirements. Non-degree students may not complete a Queen's Bachelor of Commerce degree by means of this program.
