Transfer Credit and Bachelor of Science Degrees for Students Who Successfully Complete First Year Medical Science Professional Training
Students who complete at least 90 units in a science degree program and are accepted into an accredited professional program in medicine, dentistry, optometry or veterinary medicine are eligible for a Simon Fraser University bachelor of science degree 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 or honours program. Candidates must apply for transfer credit by requesting a Letter of Permission (LOP) and apply to graduate. As an official transcript of the work completed in the first two years of the professional program is required for transfer credit, application for graduation should be made in the summer term following the completion of program.
