Immunology Specialist (Science Program) - ASSPE1002

Enrolment Requirements: 

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student’s marks in the 3.0 required first-year courses:

BIO120H1, BIO130H1, [ CHM135H1 (formerly CHM139H1); CHM136H1 (formerly CHM138H1)]/ CHM151Y1, ( MAT135H1, MAT136H1)/ MAT137Y1 with an average of at least 70% on these 3.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) and a final mark of at least 65% in each course.

While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = high 70s; average = high 70s.

Achieving these estimated marks does not guarantee admission to the program in any given year.

Note: Students must apply to this program on the A&S Current Students Program Enrolment website.
