Transfer Credit and Baccalaureate Degrees for Students Who Successfully Complete Second Year of Professional Training in Health Careers
Students who complete at least 90 units in a Faculty of Health Sciences degree program and are accepted into an approved program in medicine, dentistry, optometry, or veterinary medicine are eligible for a Simon Fraser University baccalaureate degree from the Faculty of Health Sciences after successful completion of the second professional study year. To be acceptable, courses completed in the professional program must not duplicate those already completed at Simon Fraser University and must be acceptable for transfer credit in a major, joint major, or honours program. Candidates must apply for transfer credit by requesting a Letter of Permission (LOP) and apply to graduate. An official transcript of the work completed in the first two years of the approved program will be required for application of transfer credit.
It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of faculty regulations as stated in this Calendar. Departmental and faculty advisors and staff are available for advice and guidance. However, the ultimate responsibility for completeness and correctness of course selection, for compliance with and completion of program and degree requirements and for observance of regulations and deadlines rests with the student.
