Minimum Grade Requirements

Engineering science students must maintain a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of at least 2.2 to remain in the program. Students with CGPA falling below this minimum after one year from the time of admission to Engineering Science will be moved to the Bachelor of General Studies in Applied Sciences.

A minimum 2.4 CGPA is required for direct registration in upper division courses.  Faculty of Applied Science students with a CGPA below 2.4 need to see an advisor to register in these courses.  Other Faculties' students may not register with a CGPA below 2.4.


To enroll in a course, a minimum "C-" grade is required in all course prerequisites.

Some exceptions are allowed for students admitted to the ENSC program before September 2009. The student requesting the exception must meet all of the following conditions:

·         The student has a CGPA of at least  2.4

·         The student is requesting an exemption for an ENSC course

·         The student obtained a grade of ‘D’ in the required pre-requisite course(s).

As the registration system will not recognize a "D" grade, Burnaby students will have to contact the Undergraduate Program Assistant by e-mail ( for a system override, making sure to include your full name and student ID number.
